Southbound Traffic Goes To Three Lanes as of December 23
At 9 p.m. on Tuesday, 12/22, the process of restoring Route 1 southbound to its full three-lane capacity will begin. This operation will be completed by the early morning hours of Wednesday, 12/23. The reopening operation will require a full overnight closure of Route 1 southbound where it passes through the Chelsea Viaduct portion of the combined Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation Project.
During the closure of all southbound lanes, which begins at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, southbound traffic will be detoured off Route 1 at the Carter Street off-ramp and motorists will then turn right on Carter Street, turn left on Everett Avenue, and turn right at the Everett Avenue on-ramp to rejoin Route 1 southbound. Following the operation, a work zone will be in the median.
Drivers should take care to pay attention to all signage and move carefully through the work zone. Police details, lane markings, temporary barriers, traffic cones, signage, and other tools will be used to control traffic and create safe work zones.
