Hello again! Thanks for all your feedback on the Cape traffic entry. Can't wait to hear your questions for Monday - be sure to send them in using the "Submit" box to the right.

Let's take a look at what's planned for MBTA and roadside construction over the next week...


MBTA Matters

- If you take the Green Line’s B branch home, expect delays this weekend. Buses will be replacing service from Boston College to Washington Street from the start of service Saturday morning until the end of service Sunday night. The shuttle buses will be making all stops. The MBTA says the closure is necessary to repair the track at Chestnut Hill Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue. They say they’ll also be stringing new electrical wire at Boston College.

- Buses will be back at it again on the Blue Line this weekend. Service from Wonderland to Revere Beach will be replaced from the start of service Saturday morning until the end of service Sunday night. Shuttle buses will make all stops on that stretch as well. MBTA officials say the closure is to continue steel work on the Blue Line Streetscape Project.

You'll find brake lights here...

93 in both directions between Exit 45 (River Road) to Exit 41 (Route 125): The shoulder and two left lanes are closed tonight (Friday) from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.

128 North between Exit 16 (Route 109) and Exit 18 (Route 135): The left travel lane is closed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. for ongoing highway widening work.

Route 1 North from Essex Street to Main Street, Saugus: Watch for utility work in the left lane daily until Thursday.

Route 9 East from 95 to Dudley Road: The shoulder and right lanes will be closed Monday through Friday from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.

North Harvard Street over the Larz Anderson Bridge: Continual lane closures are in effect in both directions for bridge reconstruction work.

Tobin Bridge in both directions: Watch for continual lane closures as DOT crews continue to paint the bridge. These will be in effect until November.

Of course, if you know of any closures that affect your ride that I've missed, be sure to pass it on! Otherwise, have a safe and happy weekend. I'll be back on Monday to answer more of your commuting-related questions.
