In response to customer feedback, MassDOT today announced improvements at the I-90 East Weston toll plaza near I-95/Route 128 that add two extra Fast Lanes during peak commuter and traffic hours. Effective immediately during the morning commute as many as five Fast Lanes may be open, as seen at left.
The Weston toll plaza is the busiest with 35,000 drivers on an average weekday. Congestion is especially high during the morning commute due to traffic heading into Boston and merging with traffic from I-95/Route 128. MassDOT crews have modified two cash toll lanes to allow them to be quickly switched between manual and electronic Fast Lane tolls. This new change allows for as many as five Fast Lanes during peak commuter hours and fewer on holiday weekends and other times when the number of cash customers are higher. The dedicated Fast Lane ramp from I-95/Route 128 to I-90 East remains closed indefinitely to allow for better traffic flow through the Weston toll plaza.
