What to expect

Crews working for WSDOT will construct a new noise wall along Boylston Avenue East, just north of East Edgar Street, and continuing along the west side of I-5 to Franklin Avenue East. Travelers should plan for lane restrictions and closures on Boylston Avenue East throughout the project. Nighttime and weekend single lane closures of southbound I-5 as well as the exit to Boylston Avenue East are also expected.
