Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) chief Richard Davey pledged more transparency in the Casey Arborway project in an exclusive Gazette interview with him and other top officials at MassDOT headquarters last week.
“We have to continue to work hard to earn the community’s trust, so they don’t expect the worst from the DOT,” Davey said. “We’re going to double down in improving that trust and openness.”
While Davey did not outline specific actions the design team plans to take, positive steps have already been taken. In response to requests from the project’s Design Advisory Group, MassDOT sent out materials relevant to this month’s meeting several days ahead, so DAG members would have time to study them. That meeting is slated for Weds., July 18.
