MassDOT Highway Division to Host Touch-A-Truck Events across the Commonwealth

Join us on Saturday, May 21, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for these kid-friendly events

BOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is inviting the public to join us at one of our statewide highway district depots to “Touch-A-Truck” on Saturday, May 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. These events are being held as part of the National Public Works Week, which is taking place from Sunday, May 15, to Saturday, May 21, to highlight the value and necessities of public works projects throughout North America.  

“MassDOT is glad to bring back the statewide “Touch-A-Truck” event to celebrate National Public Works Week,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver. “This event is an interactive way to show just how big or unique some of the equipment used to maintain our highways or inspect our bridges are.”

At these events, members of the public will be given an overview of the key pieces of seasonal and year-round equipment that are used to conduct statewide public works projects. Public works projects, through planning, building, managing, and operating, help make improvements, ensure safety on roadways, and impact quality of life.
