WORCESTER – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that it will be implementing a temporary overnight closure of the I-290 eastbound exit 11 (College Square) off-ramp in Worcester. The ramp closure will take place from 10:00 p.m. on Monday, May 17, through 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 18, and is needed to facilitate routine construction operations.
Traffic will be directed to follow the detour signage in place and use exit 13 (Route 122/Vernon Street) to reverse direction to I-290 westbound back to exit 11 during construction operations.
Message boards, signs, traffic control devices, and law enforcement details will be used to guide drivers safely through the work zone.
MassDOT encourages drivers to seek alternate routes, reduce speed and use caution while approaching and traveling through the work zone.
