If you planning to head into Boston via the Ted Williams tunnel on Tuesday night, be aware that the tunnel will be closed.

The closure starts on Tuesday July 8 at 11 p.m. and runs until 5 a.m. on Wednesday, July 9. Maintenance work is causing the closure of the Ted Williams Tunnel, I-90 West through Boston.

Beginning in East Boston, 1-90 Westbound traffic will be diverted through the Sumner Tunnel to Haymarket, to I-93 South to access I-90 West again. I-90 Westbound traffic will be kept in the right lane as crews work in the Prudential Tunnel westbound. Trucks will be directed to use Route 1A North, to Route 16 East, following to Route 1 South to I-93 South via the Tobin Bridge.

MassDOT encourages drivers to seek alternate routes when possible to minimize delays. Those traveling through the area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution on the detour routes.
