SOUTHBOROUGH – MassDOT is replacing bridges on I-90 east and westbound over Flanders Road in Westborough and Parkerville Road, Cordaville Road, and Woodland Road in Southborough as part of this project.

The replacement of the eight bridges (2 spans per local road) is taking place over eight weekends between June 18 and August 16, 2021. 

I-90 East and Westbound Travel Lane Closures for Barrier Relocation 

The primary work this weekend will be to relocate the movable zipper barrier to prepare for the Woodland Road eastbound bridge replacement on July 23 – 26.

Lanes will be reopened as feasible; however, travelers should expect that the high speed lane of I-90 east and westbound will be closed throughout the weekend.  In addition, the middle lane of I-90 westbound will be closed during off-peak travel times to facilitate this work.  

Due to anticipated weather conditions, MassDOT has postponed previously announced waterproofing and paving of the four new westbound bridges planned for this weekend. 

Lane closures will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 16, and all lanes will be reopened by 5 a.m. on Monday, July 19.

There will be no median crossover and no impacts to local roads below the bridges during this weekend. 

There will be advance signage in place to alert drivers to the I-90 lane closures.

If you travel on I-90: During the work, travel lanes in both directions of I-90 will be reduced between Woodland Road in Southborough and Flanders Road in Westborough, which will result in higher than normal congestion.

Plan ahead: The reduction of I-90 travel lanes will result in higher than normal congestion, drivers should plan accordingly.

Drivers traveling in both directions should expect delays.
