Beginning at 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 29 and continuing through noon on Sunday, September 30, there will be multiple lane closures on the section of I-93 South in the vicinity of the Ponkapoag Trail bridge (Exit 3) in Milton to allow work crews to complete roadway reconstruction and paving operations.
The ramp from Route 24 North to I-93 South will be closed during portions of this work with affected traffic being detoured to I-93 North to reverse direction at the Route 28 (Exit 5) interchange.
Appropriate signs, channelizing devices and traffic control measures will be used to guide drivers through the work zone. MassDOT encourages drivers to seek alternate routes, to avoid delays. Drivers that must travel through the affected area should expect delays, particularly during the period on Sunday, September 30 between 6 a.m. and 12 p.m.
Drivers should reduce speed and use caution while approaching and traveling near or through the work zone and along any associated detour routes.
The work is part of a $53.7 million project to widen a 5.5 mile section of Route I-93/Route I-95/ Route 128 between Randolph and Westwood to provide an additional travel lane in each direction.
