Pioneer Institute is committed to improving the quality of life for Massachusetts residents. That includes promoting responsible oversight of the state’s transportation infrastructure, and transparency in government. In the letter below, Pioneer Research Director Gregory Sullivan called on Massachusetts Transportation Secretary Richard Davey to release information about the crash-worthiness of the barriers near the Zakim Bridge and the Leverett Connector. In the letter, he noted that three instances of truck rollovers have occurred in that vicinity since 2007, and that state officials had already known of the safety concerns surrounding use of 32-inch barriers several years before construction of the Zakim Bridge ramps.
