There is another temporary closing next week of the Interstates 495 and 93 Interchange ramps in Andover.

Alternating closings of I-495 northbound exit 97B and I-93 northbound exit 40A take place nightly, Tuesday, Jan. 3 through Friday, Jan. 6, from 8 p.m.-5 a.m., with work concluding by 5 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 6. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation reports access to one of the ramps will always be maintained.

During the overnight work, there will be a one at a time ramp closing to install light pole pre-cast concrete foundations and spread asphalt millings for the base of attenuators by high mast light towers.

Detours will be in place.

The work is part of a $5 million highway lighting repair and improvement project at the interchange in Andover and Tewksbury.
