Statement of Mike Capuano on the Department of Transportation Office of the Inspector General's Report

August 17, 2007

"I am pleased to see that the Department of Transportation Office of the Inspector General (DOT IG) is continuing its thorough oversight of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Stem to Stern Safety Review. The DOT IG's report raises several serious issues that warrant our continued collective attention. I am confident that the Commonwealth has already begun to act on these issues and I believe that this oversight process will continue to be collaborative and productive."

"The traveling public in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts should know that this report is in no way suggesting to our citizens that they need to fear using our bridges and tunnels. Rather, the Inspector General's work provides a critical map to ensuring public safety in the Central Artery Tunnel Project. I am confident that the bridges and tunnels of the Big Dig are safe. If I wasn't, my family and I wouldn't continue to use them as we do."

"I will continue to keep in close contact with the DOT IG and all involved parties as the Stem to Stern Safety Review and its federal oversight continue."
