The 91 viaduct construction has caused some traffic troubles, but drivers are expected to get a break from some of those highway headaches soon enough.
The project is ahead of schedule. An additional lane will reopen on the I-91 viaduct and several other ramps will open.
The Birnie Avenue connector on-ramp will reopen Monday at 9 p.m.
The exit 6 off-ramp on the southbound side to Union street will open Tuesday at 5 a.m.
Many of the changes will take place on Saturday, November 18.
The exit 7 off-ramp on 91 South toward the Basketball Hall of Fame will reopen, as well as the the West Columbus Avenue on-ramp.
An additional lane on 91 south will also reopen.
“Going forward, for the most part, the remaining Viaduct Project work will occur during off-peak traffic hours under temporary lane closures,” said Patrick Paul, of MassDOT.
The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
