MassDOT and its project team understand that construction staging and construction period traffic management are significant concerns for commuters. On Route 1 Northbound (lower deck), one lane will be closed throughout the 2019 & 2020 construction seasons. Lane closures on Route 1 Southbound (upper deck) will occur during off peak hours. During ramp work, crews will make every effort to keep closures to a minimum. The public will be informed in advance of all work impacting traffic.
