Overnight closures on Main Street, I-91 Exit 8

If you're taking I-91 northbound, you must get off at Exit 9 to access I-291

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drivers will be facing nighttime detours in downtown Springfield through the end of the work week.

Main Street between Congress Street and Carew Street will be closed from 9:00 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. Monday through Friday. During that same time period, Exit 8 (I-291/Route 20 East) off I-91 northbound will be closed.

This is due to demolition and cleanup work in the ongoing I-91 reconstruction project.

Main Street traffic will be detoured onto Dwight Street.

Drivers hoping to access I-291 eastbound will have to take Exit 9 to Main Street (Route 20A). Take Main Street and turn left onto Liberty Street, then make another left onto Chestnut Street to access the ramp to I-291 eastbound.
