Gov. Patrick Fields Questions From MetroWesters

The governor had a live chat with Patch yesterday.

Natick resident and Patch blogger Ben Jackson asked Gov. Deval Patrick a question during Patch's live chat.

The governor responded: "Hi, Ben. Tolling on the Pike is a function of commitments made by previous administrations in our bond agreements. Tolling on the central artery (for example) can be done only with federal approval, because it's a federal highway. Rest assured, all of it is under consideration as we think through a transportation financing plan. I might suggest that you and others interested in the options might want to participate in the several public hearings on transportation financing over the next couple of months. Details atmass.gov/massdot/yourvisionourfuture."
