MassDOT: Chelsea - Revere – Route 1 Southbound

Overnight Lane Closures June 16 through June 21 

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced there will be lane closures on Route 1 southbound between Sargent Street in Revere and Carter Street in Chelsea beginning the evening of Sunday, June 16, and continuing during overnight hours only through the morning of Friday, June 21.

These overnight lane closures will take place each night from 8 p.m., through 5 a.m. the following morning, and are necessary in order to allow crews to safely and effectively carry out construction operations. The on and off-ramps at the intersection with Route 16 may also be closed intermittently during these times with detours set up for impacted traffic. This work is part of an on-going construction operation on Route 1 that will continue through early July.

Appropriate signage, law enforcement details, and advanced message boards will be in place to guide drivers through the work area. Drivers who are traveling through the area should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution. All scheduled work is weather dependent and may be impacted due to an emergency situation.
