In order to enable crews to safely and effectively conduct construction operations, lane closures and temporary ramp closures will be implemented during these weekday overnight hours at various locations throughout the project areas. The full hours for this work are currently expected to be approximately 8 p.m., through 5 a.m., on Sunday through Friday each week. These operations will continue throughout the 2018 construction season.

Work that will occur at these locations includes milling, paving, installing pavement markings, and completing roadway finish items. The full locations and descriptions of the projects are as follows:

  • I-95 from Exit 54 in Georgetown to the New Hampshire border. This $19.6 million project began in August 2015 and is expected to be completed in August 2018.
  • I-93 from Exit 45 in Andover to the New Hampshire border. This $13.5 million project is beginning in April and is expected to be completed in spring 2020.
  • I-495 from Exit 39 in Andover to Exit 43 in North Andover. This $19.9 million project began in July 2016, and is expected to be completed in November 2018.
  • Route 1 from the Revere Beach Parkway in Chelsea to Broadway in Saugus. This $19.8 million project began in January 2016, and is expected to be completed in August 2018.
  • Route 213 in Methuen between Exit 48 and Exit 47. This $11.9 million project began in March 2017, and is expected to be completed in November 2018.
