Beginning Tuesday night, Jan. 22 at 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. Wednesday morning, Jan. 23 MassDOT will close the Northbound lanes on I-93 through Boston. Motorists traveling to Logan Airport from the south on I-93 should allow extra travel time.
According to MassDOT:
On Tuesday, Jan. 22 overnight into Wednesday January 23, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s enhanced maintenance schedule will require complete lane closures of Interstate 93 Northbound through Boston.
I-93 NORTHBOUND traffic will be detoured off the highway at Exit 18 (Mass Ave exit) to Frontage Road Northbound. Ramps from Frontage Road Northbound allow traffic to get to I-90 Eastbound (Logan Airport) and I-90 Westbound. I-93 Northbound traffic will continue on Atlantic Avenue and re-enter I-93 Northbound at the on ramp near TD Garden. Traffic destined for Route 1 Northbound (Tobin Bridge) should stay on the surface streets and access the Route 1 Northbound on-ramp in City Square.
Maintenance crews, contractors, along with State and Boston Police will begin set-up for the lane closures on Tuesday evening at 11pm. The full closure will begin at midnight on Wednesday and last until 5am Wednesday morning.
Last year, MassDOT implemented these twice monthly closures in the O’Neill and Ted Williams Tunnels to clean surfaces, conduct general maintenance and inspect electrical and communication systems. Maintenance activities were suspended during the holiday season. The absence of live traffic allows crews to work safely and efficiently.
