Overnight Lane Closures on Mass Pike to Begin Soon


MassDOT provided the following information:

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced it will be conducting overnight milling work on I-90 east and westbound in Boston between North Beacon Street and Brooks Street beginning on Tuesday, May 15.

In order to allow crews to safely and effectively conduct these operations, intermittent lane closures will be implemented during overnight hours throughout this area. Lane closures will be implemented on only one side of I-90 at a time and crews are expected to begin work on I-90 eastbound before transitioning to working on I-90 westbound.

The full hours for this work are approximately from 10 p.m., through 5 a.m. These operations are expected to be completed in approximately one week and are in advance of paving operations that will occur in the coming weeks. 

MassDOT encourages drivers to be mindful of these potential impacts. Those traveling throughout the area should reduce speed and use caution. The schedule for this work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
