The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will hold a public meeting on August 22 to discuss its all-electronic tolling (AET) proposal [2].

MassDOT has proposed converting and replacing the I-90 Western Turnpike and I-90 Boston Metropolitan Highway System interchange-based manual cash and electronic toll collection systems with new AET systems, which would eliminate the need for toll-takers [3].

The meeting, which will take place at Springfield City Hall from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., is the last of three meetings in which MassDOT will present information to and solicit comments from the public regarding the AET proposal. Other meetings took place in Boston on August 15 and in Worcester on August 20.

An Environmental Notification Form for the proposed project is available here [4].
