The first rapid bridge superstructure replacements on I-93 in Medford as part of the 93Fast14 project begins Friday, June 3rd at 8:00 PM through Monday, June 6th at 5:00 AM. The first location involves the bridge on I-93 north over Riverside Avenue.
Check out the new interactive project website now available with maps, video, project updates, and helpful links at www.mass.gov/massdot/93fast14.
Throughout the course of this coming weekend, traffic on I-93 will be limited to two lanes in each direction over a 6 mile segment between Exit 28 (Sullivan Square) in Somerville and Exit 36 (Montvale Avenue) in Stoneham. Traffic on I-93 north will be directed through a median crossover near the Somerville/Medford line and then travel in counter-flow operation on the southbound barrel of the highway before traveling through a second median crossover near Spot Pond in Stoneham. I-93 directional traffic will be separated by a moveable “zipper lane” barrier. Access to and from many of the ramps on I-93 north in this area will be restricted.
MassDOT strongly advises drivers to plan their travel routes and times carefully and to use alternate routes or public transportation to avoid this area if possible. MassDOT strongly recommends drivers that do not have a destination in the Medford/Downtown Boston area use alternate routes [I-495, I-95 (Route 128), Route 1 and I-90] to avoid the construction area.
The $98.1 million project to replace the fourteen bridge superstructures in Medford is funded through the Patrick-Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to reduce the Commonwealth’s backlog of structurally-deficient bridges.
