I-93 HOV Lane, Somerville Interim Striping, August 2013MassDOT reminds drivers that the I-93 southbound High Occupancy Vehicle lane in Somerville and Boston is restricted to vehicles with two or more passengers only during weekdays between 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM.

MassDOT in June started the $12.75 million project to make bridge and roadway repairs and resurface I-93 in both directions for approximately two miles in Somerville and Boston.

In order to complete the reconstruction work, the barrier islands that previously separated the HOV lane on I-93 south have been temporarily removed for the duration of the project.  MassDOT has replaced the islands temporarily with pavement markings and signs to clearly identify the HOV lane and associated restrictions.

New three-foot reflective paddles will be installed near the end of the project to separate the HOV lane from the remaining lanes of I-93 south.

As a reminder, from Monday to Friday between 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., the HOV lane is open to passenger vehicles with two or more occupants, buses, and motorcycles.

HOV lane use is closely monitored by State Police.  Ineligible vehicles are subject to a $50 fine.

The project is expected to be completed by late 2014.
