DRAFT – MASSDOT CAPITAL INVESTMENT PLAN 1

Secretary of Transportation Richard Davey offering remarks at the 2013 Transportation Day on the Hill event at the State House.
To our customers I am pleased to present the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s (MassDOT) draft five-year Capital Investment Plan (CIP). Over the coming weeks, we look forward to your feedback on the proposed projects that are funded. This document, in many respects, is the outcome of both Governor Patrick and the Legislature’s seven year effort to deliver on transportation reform and investment. In 2007, an immediate transportation needs bond bill was passed and signed into law, and the Governor created the first ever Mobility Compact to enable the historically siloed transportation agencies to work together to improve our system. One year later, the Patrick Administration worked with the Legislature to enact the $3.0 billion Accelerated Bridge Program to address hundreds of crumbling bridges in Massachusetts. In 2009, Governor Patrick and the Legislature delivered landmark transportation reform legislation that eliminated bureaucracies, improved safety and the customer experience, saved the taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars and created MassDOT. In 2011 and 2012, the Patrick Administration launched a series of statewide conversations to hear the public’s vision for the future of transportation in the Commonwealth and ideas for how to equitably pay for it. This past July, new transportation reforms and additional resources became available to invest in transportation. And now, we are publishing the first consolidated transportation capital plan in the Commonwealth’s recent history. This CIP is designed to be a transparent, comprehensive plan that describes how MassDOT is funded and provides a roadmap for balancing in our statewide transportation needs with fiscally constrained transportation resources. This integrated approach provides a foundation for understanding the total state investment in public transit, bike paths, paratransit, roads, bridges, airports, and railroads. In partnership with the We Move Massachusetts process, the CIP is also reflective of a more strategic process for choosing projects as we seek
outcomes
for the choices we make, such as better reliability in our transit system, investing in the health of the state’s bridges or achieving our 2030 mode shift goals. More broadly however, the plan seeks to fund investments that will help to fulfill a common vision of enhancing mobility, improving safety, stimulating economic growth, leveraging private investment, and protecting our environment.

Working with the new Project Selection Advisory Commission over the next twelve months, we will refine the criteria to be used to prioritize transportation projects in the future. The CIP reflects our goal of developing a more strategic process for investing in projects that are consistent with your priorities in the areas of mobility, equity, environmental stewardship and economic development. This capital investment plan is designed to provide you with information about how every dollar allocated to transportation is used. I encourage customers, stakeholders and transportation advocates to let your opinions and voices be heard. Please participate in one of our upcoming public meetings or provide comments through our website: http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/wemove/. Thank you for your interest in shaping our transportation future. Sincerely, Richard A. Davey
