A Message From Chairman Matt Amorello

Hat tip to our pals at MassBackwards...

Visit the Turnpike Authority's webpage, and you'll find a "personal message" to you from the Chairman himself. Here's his current message [all comedy is unintended. No words have been altered.]

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.

--Sincerely,Matthew J. Amorello
