The drops may be coming down a little more lightly tonight and skies may be expected to brighten Tuesday, but state officials are warning that the morning commute could still be a tough one, with delays caused by localized flooding due to the deluge of the last three days.
The state Department of Transportation said in a statement that it expected interstates to be free of water in the morning, but there could still be significant delays on local roads in eastern Massachusetts.
The D branch of the Green Line will remain closed between Riverside and Reservoir stations due to a washout underneath the tracks. Delays are expected on the commuter lines also, as trains run at reduced speeds due to track conditions. Some bus lines are being diverted around flooded areas. In addition, the rainwater has reopened many potholes, the officials said.
The officials also warned of Norwood Airport closures due to flooding.
