Traffic Management

As of July 30, work on the Route 2 bridges is substantially complete with both east and westbound traffic in their final configurations. Final work on I-95 in the project area, including paving and pavement markings, will be completed once repairs to the I-95 bridges over Lincoln Street just south of Route 2A are finished. The anticipated final project completion is fall 2016.

Intermittent lane and ramp closures during off-peak hours on Route 2 and I-95 will occur through fall 2016. Signs indicating closures and detour routes are placed throughout the project area, as necessary.

Route 2:

Three travel lanes and an auxiliary lane are provided in each direction to maintain traffic at all times.

Traffic will be maintained at all times on Route 2 east and westbound.


Overnight single and double lane closures on I-95 North and South between Exit 28 and Exit 30 will be implemented, as necessary to accommodate project construction. All lanes will reopen at 5:00 AM each weekday morning for peak commuting hours.

Traffic will be maintained at all times on I-95 during this work.

I-95 is a major north-south corridor for commuters, tourists and trucks carrying goods destined for cities across the U.S. and Canada. Route 2 carries traffic east and west in the Boston Metropolitan Area. MassDOT has committed to maintaining three travel lanes in each direction on Route 2 during peak hours. Travel will be restricted at times to one lane in each direction, for a limited duration during off-peak hours. A minimum of four travel lanes and one auxiliary lane in each direction will be maintained on I-95 during peak travel times (6 AM to 10 AM and 3 PM to 7 PM).

The schedule for this major infrastructure project is subject to change without notice. All lane restrictions and closures and construction activities are weather dependent. As is typical with most large construction projects, work may sometimes take place without prior notice; however, MassDOT will make every effort to provide advance notice.
