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.
