A recent vehicle fuel spill on Winter Street caused significant afternoon traffic delays and points to the need for more elaborate and thoughtful emergency traffic management in the region. Many of the key intersections along the central 128 corridor are not designed for extraordinary traffic challenges. Disjointed responses from local fire and safety officials often result in more complexity and challenges. Contingency planning to avoid past problems have been a critical focus of the Alliance agenda. The key to successful efforts requires the coordinated efforts of state officials, local governments and public utilities. The Alliance is committed to fostering this dialogue in a constructive and fruitful fashion to avert unreasonable delays while protecting the safety of the workforce.
