The ramp from the Route 85 connector westbound to I-495 northbound will also be closed from 8 p.m., Tuesday, June 26, until 4 a.m. Wednesday, June 27.

These temporary overnight traffic impacts are necessary to allow crews and contractors to safely and effectively conduct line striping operations.

During these times, traffic that is seeking to access I-495 northbound or the Route 85 Connector will be directed to utilize I-495 southbound to Exit 24A (Route 20 eastbound).

Signs, traffic control devices, and message boards will be used to guide drivers through the work zone. MassDOT encourages drivers to reduce speed and use caution, and allow for extra time throughout this area. All work is weather dependent and is subject to change without notice.
