Lowell I-495 Bridge Bundle Logo
MassDOT's I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle project reaches a first major milestone this weekend with the first phase of new bridges placed in service and the Woburn Street interchange Exit 37 to reopen.  

Assuming favorable weather conditions, the northbound exit ramp at the Woburn Street interchange will reopen on Saturday, June 26.  This ramp will be available to traffic at all times between 5AM and 10PM.  After 10PM it will be subject to frequent closures as required for construction activity. 

Construction work on the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle will shift northbound traffic into a new lane alignment overnight on Friday, June 25. Traffic will be shifted out of the high speed lanes and onto the three new bridges on the right-hand side of the highway.  The project’s second phase replacing the second half of the northbound bridges will begin immediately.  MassDOT recommends drivers plan ahead and allow extra time for trips through the work zone, especially during the weekend of the 25th-27th. 

The reopening of the northbound exit ramp at Woburn Street will allow motorists to use all of the Woburn Street ramps throughout the next construction phase. 

The second section of the northbound bridge over Woburn Street will be demolished during the night of Saturday, June 26.  During this overnight operation Woburn Street beneath the bridge will be closed.  All four ramps at this interchange will remain open during the operation.

The replacement of the six bridges in the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle is taking place under the Patrick Administration’s eight-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program.  To learn more, visit the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle project website.
