MassDOT crews continue work to repair the bridge deck on Interstate 93 in Medford.  Tonight's update:

Crews expect to begin concrete replacement to repair the potholes beginning at 10:00pm and continuing during the overnight hours.

Two narrow lanes of traffic were open during the evening commute.  The roadway will be reduced to one land during the concrete work but will be reopened to two narrow lanes overnight when feasible. 

At approximately 7:00 PM, the jug handle on Route 1 in Peabody was closed to allow uninterrupted flow on Route 1 NB which was seeing high volumes as an alternate route.  The jug handle was reopened at approximately 8:45 PM once free flowing conditions were observed on Route 1 NB.
Backup on I-93 was observed during the evening in the Somerville area.  MassDOT anticipates all lanes northbound on I-93 will be open for the morning commute.  Early morning updates on road conditions will be available.
