Monica Tibbits-Nutt Named Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation

MCRP alumna Monica G. Tibbits-Nutt (MCRP ’07) was named the next Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation by Governor Maura Healey. 

Tibbits-Nutt, formerly the undersecretary, has been serving as acting secretary of transportation since mid-September

“Monica Tibbits-Nutt is a proven leader who has done important work at MassDOT over the past year as we’ve worked to make Massachusetts’ transportation system more reliable, safe and accessible,” said Healey in a statement.

Among the big challenges, she’ll face at the agency which includes the T, the Registry of Motor Vehicles, and the state highway division: restoring pre-pandemic transit service, resolving the growing funding gap for the MBTA’s operating budget, and shepherding long-promised transportation improvements like the Allston I-90 overhaul and the Red-Blue connector.
