Springfield I-91 Viaduct BannerMassDOT and its contractor, the Joint Venture of White-Schiavone (JV), continue to make progress on rehabilitation of the Interstate 91 Viaduct (I-91) through Springfield.

The contractor completed reconstruction of the center lanes of the highway last fall, and began Stage 2 of construction in November 2016. During Stage 2, I-91 traffic is using the center, newly reconstructed lanes on the viaduct. Exit ramp closures remain in place, as well as occasional lane or street closures, for public and contractor safety.

The next public meeting for the project will take place in September. MassDOT and the contractor host periodic public meetings to update the greater Springfield community on construction progress. Regular email advisories alert drivers to lane closings and other activities that may require additional planning or travel time. The information is also posted on the project website, where meeting and detour information are available.

The I-91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project is replacing the existing deck of the I-91 viaduct, an elevated structure in Springfield, Massachusetts. The project is progressing on an accelerated schedule to minimize traffic impacts and reduce construction duration. Once completed, the I-91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project will increase safety and accessibility on this busy interstate, reduce annual maintenance costs, and ensure long-term service.
