Beginning on Thursday, October 22, a reduction in the posted speed limits will begin in the work zone area of the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle project. This temporary reduction will lower the legal speed limit on I-495 between the Lowell Connector (Exit 35C) and Route 38 (Exit 38) from 65 miles per hour to 55 miles per hour and will remain in place until the conclusion of the project in June 2011.
The replacement of the six bridges in the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle is taking place under the Patrick Administration’s historic $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program to repair bridges across the state.
Drivers should allow extra time for trips through the work zone and will be alerted to the reduced speed limit through signs and Variable Message Signs.
