SOMERSET– The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that there will be overnight lane closures on Interstate 195 westbound and eastbound beginning at 7:00 p.m., on Sunday, September 9, and continuing each night through October 2018. These closures are necessary to allow for nighttime cleaning and painting operations beneath the Wilbur Avenue/Route 103 Bridge over I-195. Multiple lane closures are necessary to facilitate the temporary use of large pieces of construction equipment.
The work will begin above I-195 westbound lanes and progress to the eastbound lanes. The work is scheduled to occur overnight from 7:00 p.m., to 5:00 a.m. on Sunday nights through Thursday nights, and from 9:00 p.m., to 7:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The roadway may be limited at times to one lane of travel.
MassDOT encourages drivers to reduce speed and use caution, and allow for extra time throughout this area.
All work is weather dependent and is subject to change without notice.
