The Road to Reform: Restructuring the Commonwealth’s Transportation Agencies

In this major report, MTF calls on the Governor and the Legislature to reform the state's transportation agencies to produce more comprehensive and integrated priority setting, to enhance the state's capacity to finance transportation investments, and to strengthen the Commonwealth's ability to operate and maintain its transportation assets. The report, prepared in collaboration with the Artery Business Committee, analyzes key issues that need to be considered in evaluating restructuring proposals and raises a number of questions about the proposed merger of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and the Highway Department.
