Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation Project

MassDOT changed the Tobin Bridge and Chelsea Viaduct construction phases to reduce travel impacts.

U.S. Route 1 traveling on the Maurice J. Tobin Memorial Bridge and Chelsea Viaduct is undergoing rehabilitation in order to remain safe and in service for drivers, transit users, and freight trucking through the 21st Century.

In order to minimize the impacts to the 63,000 vehicles per day using Route 1, including the MBTA bus routes that cross the bridge and viaduct, MassDOT is coordinating work so that construction is carried out efficiently, effectively, and in a timely manner.

Beginning April 1, 2019, MassDOT will begin work which will require significant traffic impacts including 24/7 lane closures.
