The Baker administration will release its highly-anticipated congestion study on Thursday a year after Gov. Charlie Baker ordered the analysis of traffic throughout Massachusetts.
While its unclear whether the report will recommend solutions to congestion, Baker said two weeks ago when he filed a long-term transportation borrowing plan that his proposal to offer tax incentives to companies that allow their workers to telecommute was informed by the forthcoming report.
The administration said the congestion study looks at "when, where and why traffic congestion occurs in Massachusetts."
Baker will roll out the full findings at a 10 a.m. press conference with Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack in room 157 of the Statehouse.
The release of the report comes a day after another MBTA derailment, this time on the Green Line, at a time when public officials are exploring ways to take cars off the road and encourage the use of public transit. The press conference will be Baker's first public event since last Thursday.
