Another week, another round of lane closures, Haverhill. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has posted next week’s Interstate 495 lane closures for the north and southbound highway spans and they’re starting even earlier than usual to accommodate construction of the Haverhill bridge over the Merrimack River.

Starting Monday, Aug. 19 through Thursday, Aug. 22, the two left lanes on both north and southbound sides close overnight from 7 p.m.-5 a.m. each night. Detail officers, signs and traffic control devices will all be used to alert drivers to the closure, MassDOT said.
