Mark your calendars, people: The project to resurface both directions of I-93 in Wilmington and Woburn was just awarded to a contractor last week. The 6-mile stretch of road extends from a point just north of the I-95 interchange, north just past the bridge over the Haverhill commuter rail overpass.

A bit of the construction on the 6-mile stretch may start this fall, but the bulk of the work will take place in 2014 and 2015. Bridge decks along this stretch will also be repaired and upgraded. It may cause some traffic interruptions, said MassDOT spokesman Mike Verseckes, but those will likely occur late at night from Sunday to Thursday each week.

“This is common for interstate maintenance as closing lanes during daylight or during peak commuting hours has the potential to substantially impact traffic,” Verseckes said.
