Your ride to work on Interstate 91 in Springfield should be a bit easier Monday, whether you are traveling northbound or southbound.
Better weather conditions should make this round of repainting more successful than the last one.
22News has an update from MassDOT on what happened to the lane lines that were painted last Thursday.
MassDOT plans to evaluate the situation and consider their options given the weather conditions.
MassDot crews painted those lane lines Thursday and Friday, 22News noticed traffic was moving smoothly.
As you’re traveling on I-91 North and I-91 South the white lines disappear, making it difficult for drivers to switch lanes.
Viewers reported that some of the road markings and painted lines are missing in areas where lanes shift, making it dangerous for drivers.
The MassDOT announced the milestone Wednesday, and that the project is nine months ahead of schedule.
To get onto I-91 South in this area, drivers will have to access the highway using Hall of Fame Avenue and the Interchange 3 on-ramp.
Over the next three months, construction crews are working on the finishing touches.
The overnight road and exit closures will begin at 9 each night and will be in effect until 5 the next morning.
MassDOT will hold a public information meeting Monday and will report what still needs to be done before the project’s completed.
22News spoke with drivers who are relieved its finally open, after being closed for nearly a month and a half.
Lane closure may last through the evening commute and further information will be provided when these traffic logistics are removed.
The $148,000,000 project is funded 80 percent by federal tax money and 20 percent by state tax money.
Crews were working to remove traffic signals at the end of the ramp for temporary Exit 7-6 Tuesday.
There was another sign of progress Tuesday in the Interstate 91 reconstruction project.
Signs will be in place to detour traffic around the closures this week.
Drivers can now travel on three lanes of I-91 South on the elevated portion of the highway.
After over two years of closed ramps and lanes on I-91 in downtown Springfield, drivers are now seeing less orange cones and detour signs.
