The work is part of a $53.7 million project to widen a 5.5 mile section of Route I-93/Route I-95/ Route 128 between Randolph and Westwood to provide an additional travel lane in each direction.
The project stretches from Randolph on I-93 at the interchange with Route 24 (Exit 4), west toward Canton Junction where I-93 ends and becomes I-95 (Route 128), and continues along I-95 to Route 109 (Exit 16) in Westwood.
This week's new travel lane scheduled openings are listed below:
I-95 (Route 128) North between East Street (Exit 14) and just south of Route 109 (Exit 16) will open at 5:00 AM on Tuesday, November 27th.
I-95 (Route 128) North between the point where the on ramp from I-95 North ties in and East Street (Exit 14) will open at 5:00 AM on Wednesday, November 28th.
I-93 South between Route 138 (Exit 2) and the point where I-95 (Route 128) North begins will open at 5:00 AM on Thursday, November 29th.
I-93 South between Ponkapoag Trail (Exit 3) and Route 138 (Exit 2) will open at 5:00 AM on Friday, November 30th.
I-93 South between Route 24 (Exit 4) and Ponkapoag Trail (Exit 3) will open at 5:00 AM on Saturday, December 1st.
The schedule is subject to change if inclement weather occurs and delays the completion of required work items.
With the opening of the new fourth travel lane, the authorized use of the breakdown lane for travel during weekday peak commuting periods will be discontinued to enhance driver safety and provide emergency vehicle access.
