Our Transportation Future Releases White Paper

"Moving Forward: Transportation and the Massachusetts Economy" notes that not having a comprehensive transportation investment strategy will have significant economic consequences.

Boston, MA - Our Transportation Future (OTF), a diverse coalition of organizations working together for increased transportation investment in Massachusetts, released a new white paper today that highlights the need for development of a forward-thinking, intermodal transportation investment strategy.

"We are very appreciative of the commitment the Governor and the Legislature have made to a variety of much-needed infrastructure projects," said John Pourbaix, executive director of the Construction Industries of Massachusetts. "The effect of decades of underinvestment and neglect are beginning to be addressed, but we need to ensure aggressive investments continue if we are to be economically competitive with other states."

The white paper, "Moving Forward: Transportation and the Massachusetts Economy" reviews state, regional, and national literature on the relationship between transportation investment and the economy.
