“Public-private partnerships can be a powerful tool for the Commonwealth to work with the private sector to meet our transportation needs,” Transportation Secretary Richard Davey said in a statement.

Chaired by veteran transportation expert Alan Macdonald, the panel also includes former Congressman John Oliver, Massachusetts Organization of State Engineers & Scientists President Joseph Dorant, Radcliffe Institute senior project adviser David Luberoff, Valmo Ventures Chairwoman and CEO Valerie Mosley, 495/MetroWest Partnership Deputy Director Jessica Strunkin, and former Boston Transportation Commissioner John Vitagliano. •
