About the Mass Turnpike Authority
The 138-mile long Massachusetts Turnpike, Interstate 90, spans Massachusetts from West Stockbridge on the New York border to Logan Airport in East Boston, and on to Route 1A.

The Turnpike is actually two highway systems -- the original MassPike, which opened in 1957, and the Metropolitan Highway System (MHS), which the Massachusetts Legislature created in 1997.

The Massachusetts Turnpike runs 123 miles between the New York border and Interchanges 14 and 15 at Route 128/I-95 on the Weston-Newton town line. The Boston Extension, portions of the MHS, runs for 15 miles between Route 128/I-95 and Logan Airport/Route 1A, through the Ted Williams Tunnel and the I-90 Connector.

The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, created by an act of the Massachusetts Legislature in 1952, does not receive state or federal tax revenue. The two tunnels and the Boston Extension in the MHS, as well as the Massachusetts Turnpike, operate on toll revenue, supplemented with revenue from leasing, development of land and air rights, and advertising.

The MHS law assigned the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority the responsibility of overseeing the Central Artery/Ted Williams Tunnel (CA/T) Project, which is scheduled for completion and full operation in 2004. All CA/T roadways will become part of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority’s MHS.
