Commuters Save Two Hours a Week Thanks to Mass Turnpike Tollbooth Removals highlights an AASHTO Transportation TV interview with Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack in which she reports that motorists who commute to Boston from its western suburbs have been saving twelve minutes’ travel time in each direction (two hours per week) since MassDOT removed middle-lane tollbooths from the turnpike last year. (AASHTO has posted Secretary Pollack’s 4.5-minute interview about tollbooth removals online.)
