MassDOT has scheduled lane closures from the I-93 Northbound exit of the O'Neill Tunnel to the southern joint of the Zakim Bridge at 10 p.m. Friday night until Saturday morning at 10 a.m. and again Saturday night at 10 p.m. to Sunday at 10 a.m. One lane of traffic will remain open to motorists at all times.

The overnight lane closures are required for construction work on a 600-foot section of deteriorating concrete pavement.

Motorists should plan ahead and anticipate delays beginning as far back as the Braintree Split, especially on Saturday morning, due to the scheduled lane restrictions. Those destined for Logan Airport should closely monitor traffic conditions, allow extra time or seek an alternate route.

The concrete pavement, or micro-silica, is cracked and separating from the concrete slab below. This causes potholes to form and chunks of concrete to loosen resulting in the need for emergency repairs, patches and maintenance. Replacing the entire section with hot mix asphalt will allow MassDOT to avoid future problems with the micro-silica surface.

On Friday night October 5th at 10 p.m. MassDOT will close the 3 left Lanes of I-93 NB. This includes On-Ramps from Essex Street to I-93 NB, and Atlantic Avenue to I-93 NB. All ramps and lanes are scheduled to be open by 10 a.m. Saturday Morning.

Ramp Detours:

North on Atlantic Avenue to the I-93 NB On-Ramp at Haymarket

Rte 1 NB traffic is directed to the Rte 1 NB On-Ramp in City Square

On Saturday night October 6th at 10 p.m. MassDOT will close the 3 right lanes of I-93 NB. This includes On-Ramps from Essex Street to I-93 NB and Atlantic Avenue to I-93 NB. All ramps and lanes are scheduled to be open by 10 a.m. Sunday Morning.

Ramp Detours:

North on Atlantic Avenue to the I-93 NB On-Ramp at Haymarket

Rte 1 NB traffic is directed to the Rte 1 NB On-Ramp in City Square

This work is weather dependent.
