MassDOT I-90 Movable Barrier “Trial Run” Completed Ahead of Schedule

All I-90 lanes eastbound and westbound between

Framingham – Hopkinton reopened for travel last night at 9:15 p.m.

BOSTON – MassDOT is announcing that the I-90 “trial run” of the movable barrier implementation was successfully completed last night and all lanes of I-90 eastbound and westbound between Framingham and Hopkinton reopened at 9:15 p.m. 

MassDOT’s contractor originally anticipated completion today, Sunday, June 6, at 5:00 a.m. The purpose of the trial run was to test the I-90 temporary traffic set up for the project to replace 8 bridges when the work activities are done on weekends this summer. The goal was to make sure the traffic shift and reduction will run as smoothly as possible during the actual bridge replacement weekends from June 18 through August 16, 2021.

MassDOT appreciates the patience of drivers using I-90 during the trial run from 7 p.m., Friday June 4, through 9:15 p.m., Saturday, June 5. 

For more information about the project, please visit the website:  www.mass.gov/Acceler8Bridges.  Any member of the public with questions or concerns may email the project team A8@dot.state.ma.us.
