Intro: Turnpike Meeting, 3-17-20 from Rock The Capital on Vimeo.

Following a trend among Commonwealth agencies during the COVID-19 outbreak, the latest PTC board meeting was held remotely. An email sent Friday, March 13th 2020 communicated this shift regarding the PTC board meeting to be held Tuesday, March 17th 2020.


The safety of our employees and visitors is a high priority. As such, the Commission follows the current best practices for preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Accordingly, the Commission Meeting on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 will be held via telephone because the building will be closed to non-Turnpike employees. The Commission will post a call-in number for those who wish to attend the meeting via telephone. We invite vendors, visitors and contractors to utilize the call-in number for the meeting.

The Commission will continue to closely monitor the CDC’s and other government websites for up-to-date information regarding COVID-19, risk assessment and guidance to businesses. If you have any questions please contact me.

The WebEx phone line for the Formal Commission Meeting will be available at 10:00 am, Tuesday, March 17th. Please phone 1-415-655-0003; Meeting code: 645 741 427 to be connected to the Formal Commission Meeting on Tuesday, March 17th. The Agenda will be available on the Intranet later today.
