massdot_highway_logoThe MassDOT Board of Directors today approved the awarding of a contract for approximately $15.4 million to resurface 6 lanes of I-495 in two segments totaling 5.3 miles and including the resurfacing of five bridges.

Construction operations and work-related activities are expected to begin this winter and the project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2021. The full scope of work includes resurfacing 6 lanes of I-495 in two segments totaling 5.3 miles between Mile Marker 77.2 to 83.5, including bridge deck resurfacing of 5 bridges. The recently replaced bridge over Route 2 is excluded, hence the two segments.

The project will also include the resetting and rebuilding of drainage structures, resetting of existing guardrail, removal and replacement of impacted guardrail, installation of pavement markers, and micro milling and resurfacing the existing mainline, bridge decks, and ramps at interchanges 30 and 31.

At various times during this $15.4 million dollar project, there will be traffic impacts on the surrounding roadways as work progresses throughout the project area. As with all MassDOT projects, consideration has been given to the impact on those who use the bridges and construction activities will be undertaken in such a manner in order to minimize the impact on the traveling public and local community.

MassDOT appreciates the cooperation and patience of the traveling public as core infrastructure is maintained and rebuilt. Members of the public are encouraged to utilize the appropriate technology tools to plan trips, including mass511.com, the MassDOT GoTime travel app, and other wayfinding resources to find the most appropriate route, mode, and timing of travel during construction operations.
