The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced that overnight lane closures on the Route 99 (Main Street) bridges over the MBTA railroad in Everett at Sweetser Circle began on the evening of Sunday, March 24.
These lane closures will be implemented each night from 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., through May 2019.
During these times, a single lane of travel will be closed in this area, and the lane being closed will vary depending on operations. These impacts are necessary to allow crews to safely and effectively perform bridge repairs.
Signage and messaging will be in place to notify drivers of these restrictions. MassDOT encourages the public to be mindful of potential traffic impacts. Those traveling through the area should reduce speed and use caution. This work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
This work is being performed as part of a $5.34 million contract for bridge deck and pavement repairs at various locations.
