(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - State transportation officials are urging motorists to plan ahead because they plan to completely close the Interstate 90 Ted Williams Tunnel eastbound from 11 p.m. Tuesday until 5 a.m. Wednesday to facilitate a "necessary, enhanced maintenance schedule."
I-90 eastbound traffic destined for East Boston and Logan Airport will be directed north onto Atlantic Avenue/Cross Street and make the turn to the Callahan Tunnel at Valenti Way/Beverley Street.
A second detour will be active for truckers. Trucks will be directed to utilize the I-93 NB on ramp from Atlantic Avenue at the Seaport Blvd. intersection to Exit 27 Route 1 NB (Tobin) in order to access Route 16 Eastbound to Route 1A Southbound.
Maintenance crews, contractors, along with State and Boston Police will begin set-up for the lane closures on Tuesday evening at 11 p.m. The full closure will begin at midnight on Wednesday and last until 5 a.m. Wednesday.
Work to be performed August 7 to 8 includes cleaning drains and washing walkways, ceilings and walls.
