UPDATE: Hey, Matt, when you get a chance, you might want to update the Chairman's Message on the Mass. Pike website:
A MESSAGE FROM MATTHEW J. AMORELLO
Chairman, Massachusetts Turnpike Authority
Summer is the season for family vacations and cookouts and the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority has all its resources ready to help you find a fun tourist destination and to get you there safely.
As the "Main Street of Massachusetts," the Massachusetts Turnpike is the road to summer fun and we have a lot more to offer than the safest and best maintained highway in the nation.
We are also working hard to keep the Turnpike safe and attractive with a number of repaving projects and our annual flower planting and landscaping efforts.
I am committed to making your traveling and tourist experience in Massachusetts the best in America. Please drive safely on all of our roadways; keep your seat belt buckled and your children properly restrained in safety seats.
On behalf of all of us at the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, I wish you a safe and happy summer.
Matthew J. Amorello
