Traffic Cameras MassDOT encourages residents and visitors to plan ahead to avoid delays during the upcoming holidays and winter driving season.

Thanksgiving holiday traffic will be especially heavy on Wednesday November 25 and Sunday November 29. I-90 Exit 9 connecting I-84 to Connecticut and New York will experience heavy traffic congestion and delays at toll plazas. To avoid delays on Wednesday and Sunday, drivers are encouraged to consider travel during the early morning or after 8 p.m.

Traffic congestion is also expected at the I-95 and I-495 Turnpike interchanges along with I-495 and I-93 northbound leading into New Hampshire.

MassDOT suspends highway construction projects across the state during heavy holiday traffic. However, travel restrictions will remain on larger road projects. 

All Highway Division traffic cameras, including four new feeds from the Tobin Bridge, have been merged into one online traffic camera webpage with more than 90 live traffic cameras throughout the highway system. The cameras refresh every 10 seconds to provide real time traffic views.

Drivers can also call the state's 511 traffic information line and check radio traffic reports for updated information.  To promote safe driving for travelers, free coffee will be served at all 18 MassDOT service plazas courtesy of McDonalds, Burger King, and Gulf between 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, Thursday, November 26 to 5 a.m. on Friday, November 27.
