Weston Toll Plaza Demolition, October 29, 2016

Weston Toll Plaza Demolition, October 29, 2016

MassDOT today announced upcoming traffic pattern shifts along I-90 at Interchange 14 in Weston beginning tonight to allow for Stage 3 construction operations in the toll demolition and road reconstruction process.

These Stage 3 traffic shifts and construction operations were scheduled to take place in 2017 but due to the work of MassDOT crews and contractors and favorable work conditions, these shifts are being implemented months ahead of schedule at this location.

Details on the traffic pattern shifts are as follows:

Beginning Thursday, December 8, at 9:30 p.m.:

  • Crews will begin shifting traffic entering I-90 westbound from I-95 northbound at Interchange 14 into the Stage 3A configuration.
  • Crews will make modifications to the traffic markings on the ramp from I-95 southbound to I-90 westbound.
  • Crews will finalize this traffic shift by Friday, December 9, at 5:00 a.m.
  • During this time, crews will be removing pavement markings and striping new lines.
  • The new pattern will move this traffic to the outer limits of the existing toll plaza.
  • It will also allow for two lanes of traffic to be carried throughout the entire ramp. (It is currently reduced to one lane at one location.)
  • This traffic pattern will be maintained through spring 2017.

Beginning Tuesday, December 13 at 9:30 a.m.:

  • Crews will begin shifting traffic entering I-95 from I-90 eastbound at Interchange 14 into the Stage 3A configuration.
  • During this time, crews will be removing pavement markings and striping new lines.
  • The new pattern will also move this traffic to the outer limits of the existing toll plaza.
  • It will also make modifications for a dedicated lane for drivers entering the tandem trailer lot off I-90.
  • This traffic pattern will be maintained through spring 2017.

These operations are weather dependent and subject to change.  You may view the online Weston toll demolition and reconstruction presentation.

Travelers are encouraged to devote their full attention to driving through construction zones. They should minimize distractions, put away their cellphones, always wear their seatbelts, and utilize MassDOT’s many travel resources in order to make informed decisions regarding their travel plans.
