This is a brief overview of construction operations and traffic impacts for the Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation Project through May 7.
Southbound Lane Right Lane Taking throug May 7
Beginning Monday, May 7 through Friday, May 7 Route 1 Southbound (towards Boston) where it passes through the Chelsea Viaduct portion of the combined Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation Project will experience 24/7 closure of the right lane. The two other lanes will remain open throughout the closure period during peak travel times.
The right lane closure will assist in completing work in removing temporary asphalt and waterproofing, milling and paving, and striping of the roadway.
Drivers should take care to pay attention to all signage and move carefully through the work zone. Police details, lane markings, temporary barriers, traffic cones, signage, and other tools will be used to control traffic and create safe work zones.
