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.

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.
