Transportation Community Responds
In the aftermath of the Marathon Monday explosions, MassDOT Secretary Richard A. Davey praised the work of MassDOT, MBTA, and Massport staff in responding as events unfolded.
“It is with great pride that I write to express to the entire transportation community my deepest and most sincere thanks for all that you did over the course of this past week. Acts of heroism, quick response and simple acts of kindness were displayed by our MBTA, DOT and Massport family this week as we sought to serve the people of the Commonwealth after the Marathon bombings.”
MassDOT state highway message boards during the weekend of April 20-21 offered messages of unity and thanks following the events of the previous week.
The MBTA Copley Station, closed following the explosions, reopened Wednesday. I-90 Exit 22 Copley and Prudential ramps and surrounding streets also reopened. MassDOT and the MBTA thank everyone for their patience during the required service changes and roadway restrictions.
