    The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is implementing a single-lane closure on the Tobin Bridge on Route 1, southbound on the upper deck. The closure occurs weekly, Monday through Friday, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Two lanes of traffic will always remain open during the single-lane closures. These closures will be coordinated with other construction projects in the area.

  • Stuctural Cleaning & Painting, Steel & Concrete Repairs on Tobin Bridge: MassDOT has been working in the area for the past several months and vacuuming up paint chips that have fallen from the bridge. The paint chip cleanup is being followed by a $100 million-plus project to repair steel, remove old paint, and repaint the bridge among other improvements. Due to the weather, there is no construction work today, Wednesday, February 28. Construction will resume for the rest of the week in the Boatswains area, weather permitting. For further questions, please get in touch with the Tobin Bridge Field Office by calling 857-776-6120.
