Greetings from the field!
Since the last issue of From the Field, a great deal of work has been accomplished on the 91 Project. The next few months will continue to be busy with preparations to open the new 91 Express Lanes and new eastbound and westbound 91 lanes in spring 2017.
Please be on the lookout for the following full closures that are needed to remove the temporary support structures from the Lincoln Avenue Bridge. Please note that these dates are estimated and subject to weather and other field conditions.
- Eastbound 91 at Maple Street will be closed December 19-21 from 11 pm to 4 am each night. Motorists will exit at Maple Street, head east on Sixth Street to Lincoln Avenue, and then turn left to enter eastbound 91 at Lincoln Avenue and Second Street.
- Westbound 91 at Lincoln Avenue will be closed December 21-23 from 11 pm to 4 am. Motorists will exit the westbound Lincoln Avenue off-ramp, and then will re-enter westbound 91 at the new westbound Lincoln Avenue on-ramp, which is scheduled to open on December 21.
We are excited to be reaching some major milestones this month:
- The eastbound 91 Main Street connector to northbound and southbound Interstate 15 opened December 11.
- The westbound 91 Lincoln Avenue on-ramp will open to motorists on or about December 21.
Dates are subject to change, based on field conditions and weather. As always, please follow our Construction Alerts for more details by registering online or by email

Please help everyone arrive home safely this holiday season.
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!
