OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMassDOT reminds drivers that the Tobin Bridge Project steel preservation/repair work and painting is resuming as planned.  As a result of the work, the travel lanes on the Tobin Bridge will be reduced to two lanes through the work site.

Permanent lane restrictions will take effect SUNDAY, April 13, 2014.

Traffic channeling devices will be deployed starting Sunday night, weather permitting.  The lane restrictions will remain in effect through the fall. 

This is the third year of a three-year, $44.8 million bridge preservation project.  MassDOT’s contractor is Liberty-Alpha Joint Venture.

MassDOT is also encouraging motorists using the Tobin Bridge to join E-ZPass in anticipation of All-Electronic Tolling on the Tobin Bridge. Beginning in summer 2014, motorists will no longer stop at a toll booth and pay cash for their Tobin Bridge toll. Tolls will be collected electronically through the E-ZPass transponder or via a program in which a camera captures the license plate and the vehicle’s registered owner is billed by mail. To join, please visit E-ZPass online.
