MassDOT is continuing its ongoing overnight maintenance program in September.  Tonight, Tuesday, September 3 overnight into Wednesday, September 4, the maintenance work schedule will require complete lane closures of the Ted Williams Tunnel, Interstate 90 Eastbound, through Boston.

Maintenance crews, contractors, along with State and Boston Police will begin set-up for the lane closures tonight at 11pm. The full closure will begin at midnight on Wednesday and last until 5am Wednesday morning.

I-90 Eastbound traffic destined for East Boston and Logan Airport will be directed north onto Atlantic Avenue/Cross Street and make the turn to the Callahan Tunnel at Valenti Way/Beverley Street. A second detour will be active for truckers. Trucks will be directed to utilize the I-93 NB on ramp from Atlantic Avenue at the Seaport Blvd. intersection to Exit 27 Route 1 NB (Tobin) in order to access Route 16 Eastbound to Route 1A Southbound.

Work to be performed September 3 to 4 includes: cleaning drains and washing walkways, ceilings and walls.

We encourage motorists to plan ahead for the second complete lane closure in September: I-90 Westbound Tuesday, September 17 from 11pm to Wednesday, September 18 at 5am.

These twice monthly overnight maintenance closures and all other Boston area I-90 and I-93 overnight closures are available weekly in advance by viewing our Traffic Advisories list on the MassDOT Live Traffic Camera webpage.
