Complete Overnight Closure of I-93 Southbound is Tuesday, October 1 into Wednesday, October 2


BOSTON- Friday, September 27, 2013—This coming Tuesday, overnight into Wednesday, October 2, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s maintenance schedule will require complete lane closures of Interstate 93 Southbound through Boston.  

I-93 SOUTHBOUND traffic will be detoured off of the highway at Rt. 38/Mystic Ave onto surface streets and allowed to re-enter I-93 Southbound in the vicinity of South Station. Traffic destined for I-90 Westbound will access the I-90 Westbound on-ramp just south of Kneeland Street. This closure gives maintenance crews access to the Lower Deck, Zakim Bridge and O’Neill Tunnel Southbound. 

Maintenance crews, contractors, along with State and Boston Police will begin set-up for the closure on Tuesday evening at 11pm. The full closure will begin at midnight on Wednesday and last until 5am Wednesday morning. In the event of inclement weather, the closure will be postponed.

Plan Ahead- Complete Lane Closure Dates for the Month of October:

I-93 Northbound Tuesday, October 15 from 11pm to Wednesday, October 16 at 5am.
