MassDOT Advisory: Acceler-8 I-90 Bridge Replacement Project

I-90 Eastbound and Westbound Lane Closures between Woodland Road and Flanders Road

from 7 p.m. on Friday, July 16 through 5 a.m. Monday, July 19

No Impacts to Local Roads Below I-90 Bridges

 

WESTBOROUGH/SOUTHBOROUGH – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing work this weekend to relocate the movable zipper barrier to prepare for the Woodland Road eastbound bridge replacement on July 23 through July 26. Lanes will be reopened as feasible; however, travelers should expect that the high-speed lane of I-90 east and westbound will be closed throughout the weekend.  In addition, the middle lane of I-90 westbound will be closed during off-peak travel times to facilitate this work.

MassDOT is replacing bridges on I-90 east and westbound over Flanders Road in Westborough and Parkerville Road, Cordaville Road, and Woodland Road in Southborough as part of this project. The replacement of the eight bridges (2 spans per local road) is taking place over eight weekends between June 18 and August 16, 2021.

There will be advance signage in place to alert drivers to the I-90 configuration change and Parkerville Road and Flanders Road detours.

All times are subject to change based on weather or unforeseen events.

Due to anticipated weather conditions, MassDOT has postponed previously announced waterproofing and paving of the four new westbound bridges planned for this weekend.

Lane closures will begin at 7:00 PM on Friday, July 16, and all lanes will be reopened by 5:00 AM on Monday, July 19.

There will be no median crossover and no impacts to local roads below the bridges during this weekend.

There will be advance signage in place to alert drivers to the I-90 lane closures.

If you travel on I-90:

During the work, travel lanes in both directions of I-90 will be reduced between Route 9 in Framingham (Exit 111) and I-495 (Exit 106) in Hopkinton, which will result in some congestion.

Plan ahead: the reduction of I-90 travel lanes will result in higher than normal congestion, drivers should plan accordingly.

Drivers traveling in both directions should expect delays.
