Lane Closures and Traffic Patterns

Scheduled for the Week of April 21 - 27, 2013

All work will be performed weather permitting.  The MDTA urges motorists to drive with caution and obey all traffic-control devices and lane-control signals.  Lane closures are subject to change and closure times are dependent on traffic volumes. 



The westbound span may be closed Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning, Monday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following morning for preservation/maintenance work.  Two-way traffic will operate on the eastbound span during the full westbound span closures.

One lane of the eastbound span may be closed Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for preservation/maintenance work.  Two-way traffic will operate on the westbound span.

When daytime two-way traffic is in effect on the westbound span, toll lanes

1 through 5, on the left side of the toll plaza, will be directed into contra-flow traffic on the westbound span.  Motorists wishing to use an E-ZPass®Only lane to access the eastbound span should use toll lanes 6 or 9.

NEW lane markings and rumble strips are being installed this week on the westbound span. Once installation is complete, lane changes between the left and center lanes will be PROHIBITED for the entire span.
