Bypass Road is open! MassDOT announced beginning Monday, October 15th all traffic will be able to use section of the South Boston Bypass Road and a portion of 93 HOV lane. This will kickoff a 12-month pilot program.
The full traffic pattern changes that will be implemented 24/7 through this pilot program include allowing unrestricted eastbound travel on the South Boston Bypass Road between I-93 Frontage Road and Cypher Street/Richards Street and allowing unrestricted travel in both directions of the South Boston Bypass Road between Cypher Street/Richards Street and West Service Road. Additionally, access to the I-93 HOV lane from the following areas leading to Logan International Airport will also be unrestricted: the I-93 northbound mainline, I-93 northbound Frontage Road, and Kneeland Street/Lincoln Street.
Lets hope it alleviates the cut through traffic on L street and SOUTHIE..
