Braintree, Secretary Davey, Route 3, August 25, 2014MassDOT Secretary Richard A. Davey in Braintree today announced that the Route 3 Resurfacing Project in Weymouth and Braintree will begin Tuesday night, September 2. Paving work will occur from Exit 16/Route 18 in Weymouth to the Route 3 connection with I-93 North and South at the Braintree Split, a distance of approximately four miles.

In addition to resurfacing the main line of Route 3, the entrance and exit ramps at Exit 16 and 17 for Union Street will also be resurfaced.

“After a harsh winter season, the pavement quality along this stretch of Route 3 is in serious need of repair,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola. “We look forward to getting this work started and improving the commutes of our customers who rely on this stretch of roadway.”

As part of this project, MassDOT’s contractor will also make drainage improvements, guardrail upgrades, and bridge repairs to the five bridges within the project limits.

MassDOT’s contractor for the $12.1 million project is Aggregrate Industries of Woburn. Because Route 3 experiences high traffic volumes during the summer, work on this project will take place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday evening through Friday morning. Work is expected to be complete in late fall 2015.
