Keeping On Track

This is the first of a series of regular progress report issued by Transportation for Massachusetts, Conservation Law Foundation and MASSPIRG to evaluate the health of the Commonwealth's transportation system and the implementation of the Transportation Finance Act. Clearly, available funds cannot meet all of the state's pressing transportation needs. Therefore, full and timely implementation of the Act is imperative for this law to achieve its goal of addressing the most burning needs of the state's transportation system and to set the stage for future legislatures and administrations to continue their work to fund the transportation needs of all our residents.
