The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced that a section of Cudworth Road in Oxford will be closed to all vehicular traffic 24/7 beginning Monday, August 26, and continuing for approximately three weeks.

This traffic impact will allow crews and contractors to safely and effectively conduct construction operations on the bridge that carries Cudworth Road over I-395 in Oxford.

A detour route will be in place during these times and the Cudworth Road/I-395 interchange will remain open during these operations.

Signage, messaging, and traffic control devices will be used to guide drivers through the area. Drivers who are traveling through the impacted area should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution. All scheduled work is weather dependent and may be impacted due to an emergency situation.
