159.120 is listed in our Wiki as Wellfleet DPW. I don't see any listing here or at Radio Reference pertinent to Mass DOT. Can you elaborate on what you were hearing and where you were located when you heard it.

If I recall correctly that was a Mass Turnpike maintenance repeater frequency. When the Turnpike Authority was dissolved those VHF repeaters went away.

The MA Pike info is correct and there is an entry in our ancient "SNE Logbook" with a PL of 123.0. So that's perhaps the confusion. The OP is on Cape Cod so I'm guessing he likely heard Wellfleet DPW.

the last VHF confirmation of them was 2011 and recent years have found the DPW and Beaches on the UHF
