The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that it will be implementing temporary overnight closures of the I-290 eastbound Exit 22 and Exit 23 off-ramps to I-190 northbound and Burncoat Street in Worcester. These off-ramp closures are scheduled to take place from 10:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 5 through 5:00 a.m. on Friday, May 6, to allow routine construction operations to take place.
During the work, traffic will be directed to follow the detour signage in place and use I-290 eastbound exit 24 (Plantation Street) to reverse direction back to I-290 westbound.
Appropriate signage, law enforcement details, and messaging will be in place to guide drivers through the work area.
Drivers who are traveling through the affected areas should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution.
All scheduled work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
