SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Demolition work on the elevated portion of Interstate 91 will begin next Wednesday. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced that contractors will begin taking down the inner northbound lane of I-91, which is currently shut down to traffic.
Demolition of the inner southbound lane will take place later, with complete demolition of the inner lanes of I-91 to continue into the summer of 2017.
MassDOT says that steps have been taken to minimize the effect of noise from the dismantling of the bridge deck, including the installation of noise curtains through the work zone.
