Turnpike

Mass Pike officials remind motorists the high traffic season is upon us.  Peak days include Thursdays and Fridays prior to spring and summer weekends.

Last year, Mother's Day was the 4th busiest Sunday of the year.  Thursday and Friday before Mother’s Day weekend ranked among the top 25 among all 365 days on the Turnpike and I-93 in Boston. 

Motorists should allow extra travel time. Pay close attention to conditions at the busy I-84 interchange at Exit 9 in Sturbridge.   Call the 511 state traffic information line, or check the MassPike web expanded Road Conditions page and Traffic Cameras page.  Or sign up for e-Traveler here to receive up-to-date emails about traffic changes and road restrictions. 

To save time, money and gas, motorists are encouraged to join FAST LANE on line here or by calling 1-877-MASSPIKE.  Transponders are free of charge.

The Turnpike toll plazas will be staffed to minimize traffic delays and inconvenience.  Toll managers will be on hand to monitor traffic conditions and to call in extra help if necessary. 

To help improve traffic flow, Turnpike officials have enhanced enforcement approaching the FAST LANE lanes at the I-90 (MassPike) Eastbound toll plaza near I-95 (Route 128).  All cash lane customers are advised to keep right.  Barrels and cones have been placed between the FAST LANES and the cash lanes.
