Go Time Traffic Data Sign, April 11, 2014MassDOT advises highway travelers to plan ahead for one of the busiest days of the year on state highways this Friday ahead of the three-day Columbus Day weekend. The Friday before Columbus Day has been the busiest or second busiest day of the year on the Turnpike in the number of toll transactions in recent years. In 2013, the Friday before Columbus Day was the busiest day as drivers logged 700,121 transactions. Traffic data from the GO Time real time traffic information system shows traffic congestion on I-90 westbound in Newton peaked between 4pm and 7:30pm on that day.

Traffic congestion is also anticipated on highways heading toward popular fall and leaf peeping destinations including Cape Cod, New Hampshire and Maine.

MassDOT is reminding drivers that lane restrictions are in place on the eastbound and westbound sides of I-90 due to construction setup for the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge in Boston, east of the Allston-Brighton tolls.

Travelers have access to real time roadside traffic information on sections of I-93, I-90, Route 3 south and Route 6 on Cape Cod through the GO Time system. To plan ahead, traffic information is available for download using the free RideWise Smartphone App that provides live traffic conditions. Please check MassDOT statewide live traffic cameras before you travel.

Check the U.S Army Corps of Engineers reports for current weekday lane restrictions on the Sagamore Bridge.

Free coffee will be served at the 18 service plazas along I-90 and other major state highways on Monday night, October 13, from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

To save time, money and gas, please join E-ZPass to avoid waiting in line at cash toll booths.

The MBTA will operate on a weekday schedule on Monday, October 13.  Check mbta.com for details.

MassRMV branch offices will be closed on Monday, October 13. Visit www.massrmv.com to begin or complete many license and registration transactions.
