HAVERHILL — Drivers are being warned of temporary daytime lane closures on Interstate 495 southbound in Haverhill that will take place Monday through Thursday as part of the Merrimack River bridge construction project.
State officials said a single southbound right lane between exits 108 (old exit 50) and exit 106 (old exit 48) will be closed Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
State officials are encouraging drivers to avoid the area and seek alternate routes to avoid delays. Drivers are asked to reduce speed and use caution when traveling through these areas.
Warning signs will be used on the highway to notify drivers about the planned closures, and also to provide updates.
All scheduled work is weather dependent, state officials said.
