Haverhill travelers should expect delays along Main St. (Route 125) between Fourth Avenue and Merrimack Street from Monday, May 7 through Wednesday, May 9.

Work will be done between the hours of 5 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and is expected to include detours and lane closures.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation said that the work must be done during daytime hours due to the varying depths of the roadway, so they can ensure the correct grades.

This work is part of the $2.8 million intersection improvement project currently underway along sections of Route 125 (Main Street) and the adjacent streets.
