NORWELL, Mass. - May 31, 2018 - PRLog -- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named CDM Smith, Inc. as a winner of the 2018 Gold Engineering Excellence Awards for work on the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) conversion to an All-Electronic Tolling System on the Massachusetts Turnpike.

Larkin, PE, MBTA Assistant General Manager for Capital Delivery and Housamm ("Sam") H. Sleiman, PE, CCM, MassPort Director of Capital Programs & Environmental Affairs.

CDM Smith, Inc. with world headquarters in Boston, was retained by MassDOT to assist in converting 138 miles on the Massachusetts Turnpike from the New York border to Logan Airport to an All-Electronic Tolling System (AETS) following the 2016 closure of all toll booths on the Pike.  AETS allow for free-flow speeds on mainline highways with the use of a toll transponder or license plate image capture for transactions, eliminating long backups caused by toll booths and cash collection.
