Tobin Bridge AerialMassDOT crews have reopened all three lanes of the Tobin Bridge in the northbound and southbound directions. Periodic lane closures may still occur during the next few weeks to complete lane markings and continue steel repair.

Work requiring permanent lane closures will resume in spring 2014 on the three-year steel preservation and painting project begun in spring 2012. Lane restrictions in place since March had reduced the roadway from three lanes to two on both decks of the bridge.

The third and final year of work will begin in the spring of 2014. We invite you to stay informed by visiting the Tobin Project website.

All lanes of the Tobin Bridge will remain open during the Callahan Tunnel Rehabilitation Project full tunnel closure starting on Dec. 27, 2013 through March 12, 2014.

The complete closure of the Callahan tunnel will reduce the overall duration of the project, provide enhanced public safety by minimizing changes to traffic flow, and better coordinate with other local projects including the Tobin Bridge work.  Visit the Callahan Tunnel Project web page to learn more about the tunnel project.

MassDOT is also encouraging motorists using the Tobin Bridge to join E-ZPass in anticipation of All-Electronic Tolling on the Tobin Bridge. Beginning early in 2014, motorists will no longer stop at a toll booth and pay cash for their Tobin Bridge toll. Tolls will be collected electronically through the E-ZPass transponder or via a program in which a camera captures the license plate and the vehicle’s registered owner is billed by mail.  To join, please visit E-ZPass online.
