Drivers should plan ahead before hitting Interstate 93 through Boston late at night.

 

Multiple closures on the highway will begin twice a month as the state works on routine maintenance, tunnel wall washing, inspections and surface and ceiling work.

 

Starting Tuesday, April 3, there will be a full shutoff to the southbound side of the highway impacting motorists traveling inside the O’Neill Tunnel.

 

According to MassDOT officials, I-93 Southbound will be closed on the first Tuesday of each month from 11 p.m. to Wednesday at 5 a.m.

 

The northbound side will be closed on the third Tuesday of each month during the same times.
