Short film produced by MOSES tells the story of this ambitious and successful venture.

MassDOT was honored at the Northeast Association of Transportation Officials Annual Meeting as the winner of "Best Use of Technology & Innovation, Medium Project" category of America's Transportation Awards, a joint project by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), AAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The ambitious toll booth demolition and all electronic tolling (AET) effort earned the honors as an example of a project that is "making communities stronger, our economy more efficient and our quality of life better.”

Additionally, the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association (IBTTA) announced that the electronic toll project will get an International Toll Excellence award for “revolutionizing mobility for drivers” at the group's 85th Annual Meeting in September. The AET project is an example of how MassDOT is "implementing solutions to complex, global transportation challenges."

“And the Tolls Came Tumbling Down” is a short film produced by the Massachusetts Organization of State Engineers & Scientists (MOSES) that tells the story of how MassDOT engineers seamlessly implemented electronic tolling on the Massachusetts Turnpike.

Countless MOSES members worked around the clock overseeing the simultaneous dismantling of 23 toll plazas spanning 139 miles. When completed, this project will reduce congestion, decrease emissions and increase safety.

MOSES members featured (in order of appearance) included District 3 “Super Engineer” JP Telemaque, along with fellow lead engineers Erin Cooper (District 1), Anna Nadler (District 2), Suzanne Wilber and Chris Lee (District 3) and Eric Mistretta and Eric Feeley (District 6).

From all the MOSES members at MassDOT, we hope you enjoy the film.
