Cews will be conducting overnight milling and paving operations on Route 3A in the area approaching the Fore River Bridge in Quincy (near the Quincy Rotary) beginning on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 4., the Massachusetts Department of Transportation announces.
Milling work will occur each night from approximately 7 p.m., through 5 a.m., and is currently scheduled to conclude on Friday, Oct. 5. Paving work is then scheduled to take place during overnight hours on Tuesday, Oct. 9, and Wednesday, Oct. 10.
In order to allow crews to safely and effectively conduct operations, traffic impacts including lane restrictions will be in place during these times. The work zone at the Quincy Rotary will be staged to allow traffic to continue to travel north and south on Route 3A (Washington Street).
MassDOT encourages the public to be mindful of these impacts. Those traveling through the area should reduce speed and use caution. The schedule for the paving work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
