MassDOT Advisory Update: Wilmington

Weekend Right Lane Closures on Interstate 93 Southbound for Bridge Repairs 

Closures will take place from 8 p.m. tonight, March 5, through 4 a.m. on Monday, March 8

Drivers in this area should seek alternate routes during this time

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that it will be implementing temporary weekend closures of the two right travel lanes on Interstate 93 southbound near exit 41 (Route 125) in Wilmington. The right travel lanes will be closed from 8:00 p.m. tonight, March 5, until 4:00 a.m. on Monday, March 8, to allow work crews to continue repairs to a damaged beam on the bridge carrying Route 125 over Interstate 93. Permanent repairs to the beam will be scheduled for a later date.

In addition, the right lane on Route 125 westbound and the on-ramp from Route 125 to Interstate 93 southbound which have been recently closed are scheduled to reopen by 4:00 a.m. on Monday, March 8. Closures have been in place to facilitate repairs to the northern fascia beam on the Route 125 Bridge over Interstate 93 that was struck and damaged by an over-height trash hauler truck on February 10, 2021.

Drivers who are traveling through the area should reduce speed and use caution.

Appropriate signage, law enforcement details, and advanced message boards will be in place to guide drivers through the work area.
