contribute's picture

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has announced upcoming daytime work on local roads and overnight lane closures on I-90 that will take place in April 2021.

The contractor and its subcontractors will be conducting the following work on local roads, primarily during the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Additional work hours may be employed occasionally on the local roads. Lane closures on local roads will be in place with alternating one-way traffic through work zones:

Cordaville Road:

Drill micropiles for new bridge foundations on each side
Construct new bridge abutments
Woodland Road:

Repair concrete facing of existing bridge abutments
Parkerville Road:

Repair concrete facing of existing bridge abutments
Flanders Road:

Repair concrete facing of existing bridge abutments
Relocate utility cables into the newly installed ductbank under the roadway
MassDOT will also implement overnight lane closures on I-90 East between Exits 106 (old Exit 11A) and 111 (old Exit 12) and I-90 West between Exits 111 (old Exit 12) and 106 (old Exit 11A) from 7:00 PM each night to 5:00 AM the following morning, Sunday through Friday. The closures are necessary for median barrier replacement, roadway surface milling, and paving operations. Temporary lighting installation will also continue along westbound (WB) and eastbound (EB) I-90. The WB and EB I-90 roadway will be re-striped to create work zones in the median for the construction of traffic crossovers to be used on bridge replacement weekends.

Crews will also be working along the I-90 shoulders to install erosion control devices.

MassDOT is replacing bridges on I-90 east and westbound over Flanders Road in Westborough and Parkerville Road, Cordaville Road, and Woodland Road in Southborough as part of this project. The replacement of the eight bridges (two spans per local road) will take place over eight weekends in summer 2021.
