Traffic Alert - Intersection of George St and Route 1 (Washington St) - Posted 11/2/17

In an effort to improve safety and reduce accidents at the intersection of George Street and Route 1, Washington Street, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation Highway Division will install traffic islands on George Street at the intersection with Washington Street (Route 1). These traffic islands will restrict left turns onto Washington Street from George Street and left turns onto George Street from Washington Street. A traffic median will be installed in the intersection on Washington Street to prohibit cross traffic from George Street.

Construction will begin on Tuesday, November 7th (weather permitting) and traffic pattern changes should be anticipated during and immediately following this construction, which is expected to be completed by the end of the week.
