traffic-i-90-sturbridge-november-2018MassDOT is advising the public to plan ahead for travel during the upcoming Veteran’s Day weekend and to take note of adjusted schedules for use of the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane between Boston-Quincy and for visiting Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) customer service center locations.

The Boston I-93 HOV lane will open at the normal time in the morning on Thursday and Friday, from 5 a.m. until 10 a.m., but will open earlier than normal in the afternoon those two days: at 2 p.m. Thursday and at 1 p.m. on Friday.  The HOV lane will maintain normal hours of operation on Monday, November 12, of 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Sumner Tunnel Swing Lane will open at 1 p.m. on Friday, November 9, and will remain open until 5 a.m. on Monday, November 12.

The MBTA will operate on the regular weekday schedule on Monday, November 12.  Please check mbta.com for details.

RMV customer service locations will be closed for the Veteran’s Day observance on Monday, November 12, as are all Commonwealth of Massachusetts offices. The Registry reminds motorists to “Skip the Line, Go Online” and visit www.mass.gov/RMV to begin or complete many license and registration transactions.  In addition, AAA members now have the opportunity to conduct many RMV transactions at AAA branch office locations in Massachusetts.

Members of the public are encouraged to consider traveling to destinations this weekend by using public transportation. If driving, individuals are urged to plan ahead, allow extra time for travel, and take advantage of the many communication tools now available to help trips go smoothly.

For more information on traffic conditions, travelers are encouraged to:

  • Dial 511 and select a route to hear real-time conditions.
  • Visit mass511.com, a website which provides real-time traffic and incident advisory information and allows users to subscribe to text and email alerts for traffic conditions.
  • Follow MassDOT on Twitter @MassDOT to receive regular updates on road and traffic conditions.
  • Download MassDOT’s GoTime mobile app and view real-time traffic conditions before setting out on the road.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation thanks our veterans for their service and wishes all members of the public a safe and enjoyable weekend.
