On Monday April 6, 2020, MassDOT will temporarily reduce Route 1 where it passes through the Chelsea Curves to a single lane in the southbound direction. The reduction will last for a single day and take place outside peak commuting hours. The reduction will allow the use of accelerated bridge construction methods to ensure that this vital section of Route 1 through Chelsea can continue to safely and efficiently process passenger and freight traffic. Work will address the placement of concrete for the rehabilitated Chelsea Viaduct.
ROUTE 1 TRAFFIC IMPACTS
- ROUTE 1 SOUTHBOUND: Will be reduced to a single lane through the work zone. Following this weekday operation, Route 1 will reopen to two lanes.
- Work will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.
