Beginning at 5:00 AM tomorrow morning, Wednesday, November 14 through Friday, November 16, construction crews will open portions of the newly constructed fourth travel lane on the section of interstate roadway between Randolph and Westwood.
The work is part of a $53.7 million project to widen a 5.5 mile section of Route I-93/Route I-95/Route 128 between Randolph and Westwood to provide an additional travel lane in each direction.
The 5.5 mile project extends from Randolph on I-93 at the interchange with Route 24 (Exit 4) west, toward Canton Junction where I-93 ends and the roadway becomes I-95, continuing along I-95 to Route 109 (Exit 16) in Westwood.
The new travel lane opening schedule follows:
I-93 North between I-95 (Exit 1) in Canton and Route 24 (Exit 4) in Randolph will open tomorrow at 5:00 AM, Wednesday, November 14.
I-95 South between University Avenue (Exit 13) and I-93 North (Exit 12) in Canton will open at 5:00 AM on Thursday, November 15.
I-95 South between a point just south of Route 109 (Exit 16) and University Avenue (Exit 13) will open at 5:00 AM on Friday, November 16th. The above schedule is subject to change in case of inclement weather.
With the opening of the new fourth travel lane, authorized use of the breakdown lane for travel during weekday peak commuting periods will be discontinued within those segments.
Drivers should use extreme caution and pay particular attention to posted warning and regulatory signs when travelling within the above segments.
