WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drivers on the Mass Pike, particularly those hoping to get off at Exit 3 in Westfield, are facing some delays for the afternoon commute.

Westbound traffic is backed up for about a mile ahead of Exit 3, with the ramp itself also backed up.

State Police Sgt. Americo DiLorenzo told 22News that this is due to the ongoing work to dismantle the toll plaza at Exit 3. He said that additional state troopers have been called-in at the exit, but there is not much they can do about the bottleneck there.
