Gov. Deval Patrick has chosen MBTA General Manager Richard Davey to be the state’s next secretary of transportation.
A highway supervisor has been placed on unpaid leave pending an investigation into remarks he made after a 110-pound corroded Big Dig light fixture collapsed earlier this year.

Jeffrey Mullan says investigators are close to determining what caused a corroded light fixture to fall from the ceiling of a Big Dig tunnel in February.
The Patrick administration is seeking more than $98 million in federal transportation funds to help replace a rail bridge in Haverhill that provides Amtrak Downeaster service between Boston and Portland, Maine.
Add the state’s transportation secretary to the list of officials kept in the dark about a corroded 110-pound light fixture that fell from the ceiling of a Big Dig tunnel.
Gov. Deval Patrick says it is “as concerning to me as it is to the public” that he was not told for nearly six weeks about a light fixture that fell from the ceiling of a Big Dig tunnel.
The state admitted Thursday that it made a mistake in not to telling the public that lights in the Big Dig tunnel are corroding, especially since one fell to the ground a month ago.
