I-90 Westbound Bridge Replacement over Cordaville Road in Southborough Completed

All I-90 and local road travel lanes open

WESTBOROUGH/SOUTHBOROUGH – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is pleased to announce the replacement of the I-90 westbound bridge over Cordaville Road in Southborough has been successfully completed. All lanes on I-90 and on Cordaville Road reopened for travel today at 2:40 a.m., after being closed on Friday, June 25, when weekend construction activities began.

This summer, between June 18 and August 16, MassDOT is replacing or substantially repairing eight bridges along I-90. This is a major construction project on one of the state’s most important roadways, updating a more than 60-year-old infrastructure that serves over 100,000 drivers a day. MassDOT’s Acceler-8 project is using innovative management, contracting, and construction techniques allowing crews to complete the work in just eight weekends, when traffic is at its lowest.

MassDOT has carefully scheduled construction to avoid summer holiday traffic so work activities will pause over the Fourth of July Weekend, between Friday, July 2, and Monday, July 5.

On the weekends when construction activities are scheduled, I-90 lanes eastbound and westbound will be reduced from three lanes to two, between Framingham and Hopkinton.

MassDOT appreciates your patience during this major infrastructure project.
