More Construction On Mass Pike This Week May Cause Delays
With temperatures on the rise this week, I'm sure there are many of us that will be "cough, cough" calling in sick "hack, cough" to work and heading to where the land meets the water. If you're a fan of "high tides and good vibes" or "good times and tan lines" or perhaps "sandy toes and sunkissed nose", and you plan on heading to the beach this week, you may not want to start your journey on I-90.
All this week, now through Friday, construction at certain points of the Mass Pike will most certainly cause traffic delays in Lee, Otis, Becket, and Blandford at different times on different days.
WWLP/22 News Springfield reports that although traffic delays are expected, there should be no detours whatsoever. Drivers will be able to travel through the work zones, but you should expect intermittent lane closures.
So if the beach is calling you and that's a call that you have to answer, you should be fine as long as you allow yourself extra time to get where you need to be. Your final destination will hopefully still be there waiting for you.
Keep in mind that bridge repair work will take place both eastbound and westbound throughout the week for the towns of Lee, Becket, Otis, and Blandford, and also shoulder repair work will affect the town of Lee on Wednesday, May 19.
