ExitRenumbering_InProgress_TwitterBOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that the installation of new milepost-based signs for exits on two corridors will continue the week of Sunday, January 31. The sign installation operations will take place on U.S. Route 3 and Route 128 during overnight hours from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. the following day.

U.S. Route 3 southbound from Tyngsborough to Burlington, will completed on Tuesday, February 2. Additionally, sign installation will begin on Route 128 from Gloucester to Peabody on Wednesday, February 3. Route 128 southbound and northbound is expected to take eight days to complete.

All work is weather dependent and construction dates may be adjusted as conditions warrant.

MassDOT’s Statewide Exit Renumbering Project is converting all exit numbers on roadways, per Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirements. Previous to this project, interstates and major roadways in Massachusetts have always utilized a sequential exit numbering method.
