The state Department of Transportation will conduct bridge and guardrail repairs on local portions of the Massachusetts Turnpike this week. 

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation says crews will conduct bridge and guardrail repairs on eastbound and westbound sections of the Massachusetts Turnpike (Interstate 90) this week.

The work is planned for spans and guardrails in Lee, Otis and Becket. It is scheduled to begin in some locations at 7 a.m. Tuesday and will end at 3:30 p.m. Friday.

No construction is planned Monday, in observance of the Independence Day holiday. The work will require lane and shoulder closures.

At all times, travel will be maintained through the work zones, the DOT says. The locations and schedules for lane closures for the work are as follows:

Lee: Bridge repairs will be conducted daily eastbound, at mile marker 10.6, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bridge repairs will take place on the westbound side of the Pike, at mile marker 10.6, on Wednesday and Thursday, during the same hours.

Otis: Bridge repairs will occur daily eastbound and westbound, at mile marker 22, from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
