Heaviest Labor Day traffic on I-90 is expected Thursday and Friday westbound and Monday afternoon-evening eastbound.  The number of toll transactions on the Turnpike from Weston to the New York border on the Friday before Labor Day is typically among the 10 busiest days of the year on the Western Turnpike.

Please check MassDOT statewide live traffic cameras before you travel.

Travelers to the Cape now have access to real time roadside traffic information 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.

The U.S Army Corps of Engineers reports that all travel lanes on the Sagamore Bridge are now open through Labor Day.

Free coffee will be served at the 18 service plazas along I-90 and other major state highways on Monday night, September 1, from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.
