Mass Pike traffic backed up for miles during Friday evening commute

Posted: Updated:

There is currently a six-mile backup on the Mass Pike heading eastbound from the Connecticut River bridge in West Springfield into Westfield at exit 3.

State police tell CBS 3 that a bridge expansion joint let go earlier this afternoon that needs repair.

Crews are currently on scene fixing that joint and hope to be finished this afternoon.

Travel is currently restricted to one lane.

Police say this happens from time to time and that it will not be a major concern.
