Traffic Pattern Changes on Washington St. as of Sept. 8, 2015


 As part of ongoing work on McGrath Highway, MassDOT contractors will begin construction next week on Washington St. at the intersection with McGrath Highway that will change traffic patterns in the area.


Beginning on Tuesday, Sept., 8, traffic traveling east on Washington St. toward Sullivan Sq. will be reduced from five lanes to three, as follows:


· The current traffic pattern includes two left turn lanes directly from Washington St. onto McGrath Highway via the underpass, and three travel lanes to continue onto Washington St. or McGrath Highway.

· Through this work, the two immediate left turn lanes will be closed permanently. Vehicles needing to turn left onto McGrath Highway will be able to do so by continuing under the underpass to Washington St., and turning left on the other side of the underpass.


This work is being performed as part of the ongoing McGrath Highway Interim Improvements.
