Middlesex Turnpike Phase 3 - Updated 11/9/21

11/9/21 Update:  Please be advised that work is ongoing on the Middlesex Turnpike Phase 3 Project.  The Contractor plans to work as long as they can this season as long as the weather cooperates.

Paving in the center section of the road is scheduled for Wednesday 11/10/21 and possibly Saturday 11/13/21.

The Contractor plans to shift traffic to the newly paved area by the end of the November, while work shifts to the southbound side of Middlesex Turnpike.

-----------------------------------------------

BEDFORD/BILLERICA – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing daytime lane closures on sections of Middlesex Turnpike, Suburban Park Drive, Manning Road, and the Subway Plaza in Billerica. The daytime lane closures and detours will occur between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 21, and Monday, August 23. These lane closures and detours are necessary to allow crews to conduct roadway paving operations safely and effectively.  For these operations, detours will be in place:  

  • Manning Road east of Middlesex Turnpike will be detoured to Lexington Road.
  • Suburban Park Drive will be detoured to the secondary entrance.
  • Middlesex Turnpike and the adjacent Subway Plaza will have access through alternating entrances. 

Those traveling through the area should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution. Appropriate signage, law enforcement details and advanced message boards will be in place to guide drivers through the work area.  The schedule for this work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.

-----------------------------------------------

Beginning Wednesday, July 21, 2021, the Contractor will be reclaiming a portion of Middlesex Turnpike in Billerica from Lexington Road to 755 Middlesex Turnpike (near Subway).  We have authorized work to start at 6AM (Wednesday only) inside the Subway parking lot to mitigate access disruptions to this business.  We anticipate work in this area will continue for a few weeks before pavement is placed.  The Contractor will also be working at the intersection of Suburban Park Drive.

Please be advised that work is ongoing on the Middlesex Turnpike Phase 3 Project.
