Overnight Lane Closures on I-91 Viaduct Scheduled Through Fall

SPRINGFIELD — MassDOT’s contractor, the Joint Venture of White-Schiavone, began construction work in early July to prepare the I-91 viaduct for rehabilitation. This first phase includes utility work, intersection improvements, and bridge deck repairs with nightly lane restrictions. On Sunday through Thursday nights through fall 2015, one or two lanes on I-91 north and/or southbound will be closed during overnight hours to allow the contractor to mill out the existing pavement and repair the concrete deck. The following lane closures on the I-91 Viaduct in Springfield are planned through fall 2015:

I-91 Northbound (starting Tuesday, July 21)
• Sunday night: Single lane closures, 6-9 p.m., double lane closures, 9 p.m.-5 a.m.;
• Monday through Thursday nights: single lane closures, 7-10 p.m., double lane closures 10 p.m.-5 a.m.

I-91 Southbound (ongoing)
• Sunday night: single lane closures, 8 p.m.-12 a.m., double lane closures, 12 a.m.-5 a.m.;
• Monday through Thursday nights: single lane closures, 7-10 p.m., double lane closures 10 p.m.-5 a.m.
All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. the next morning. As work nears the north end of the viaduct, overnight closures of the I-291 on-ramp or off-ramp may be necessary. Additional notices will be provided in the event these closures are required. After all repairs are completed, the roads will be repaved and restriped. Those traveling through the area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution. Due to the presence of uneven pavement, motorcycles should use caution.
