Travelers on the Mass Pike this week of December 6, should allow for extra time to reach their destination due to construction delays, according to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
According to MassDOT, road crews will be working on guardrail repairs and steel repairs along the Mass Pike in Lee, Otis, and Becket throughout the week.
The repair work will cause various lane closures to occur intermittently during the daylight and overnight hours on different days. The following is a schedule of repairs and closures.
Most of the closures for guardrail repairs will take place at night continuing through the overnight hours, however, for the town of Lee, there will be daylight lane closures for steel repairs on I-90 eastbound and westbound at mile marker 9.4 from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Monday, December 6, through Friday, December 10.

There has been a lot of construction and road work lately, so I'm sure many drivers know the routine by now--plan ahead and allow for extra time to reach your destination. Also, as you're driving through work areas, be extra vigilant, reduce speed, use caution, and expect delays.
There will be signs and messaging in place to guide drivers through the areas where work is being conducted. Keep in mind that all scheduled work is dependant on the weather and may change with little to no notice.
