Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project

MassDOT’s design/build contractor for the Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project will continue work during the weeks of November 10 and 17. The work will require day and night lane closures on I-95 northbound and southbound throughout the project limits. Daytime closures will be limited to single lanes. Nighttime closures may be single or multiple lanes, depending on the location. Lane closures related to specific activities are listed in the schedule below, as appropriate. Some work may occur on weekends.

Please note: No work will be performed on Veteran’s Day, November 11. There will be a single lane closure on I-95 northbound from the on-ramp at Route 113 to just north of the off-ramp for Route 110 west for most of the remainder of the year.
