Beginning Tuesday, April 16, all four travel lanes on I-95 (Route 128) will be shifted to the right in each direction between Route 3A/Route 3 (Cambridge Street) and Winn Street in Burlington to allow work crews to continue reconstruction of the median area. The lane shift is expected to remain in place throughout the summer months.
The revised lane configuration will be in place on I-95 (Route 128) North on the morning of Tuesday, April 16 and on I-95 (Route 128) South on the morning of Wednesday, April 17.
There will be no breakdown lane available in either direction within the area that the lanes are shifted. The available merge area will be reduced for the ramp entering I-95 (Route 128) North from Route 3 (Cambridge Street) North and for the ramp entering I-95 (Route 128) South from Winn Street South.
Appropriate signs and traffic control measures will be in place to guide drivers through the work zone.
Drivers should expect some delays and reduce speed and use caution when travelling through the work zone and entering and exiting I-95 (Route 128).
The work is part of a $12.7 million project to upgrade the section of I-95 (Route 128) between South Bedford Street and Route 38.
