    I-93 North tunnel to close overnight

    Interstate 93 northbound will be closed in Boston from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation said.

    MassDOT spokesman Michael Verseckes said Monday that the highway will be closed to accommodate regularly scheduled maintenance between Exit 18 — Frontage Road to Massachusetts Avenue — and the Cross Street onramp, just past Salem Street in the North End. He said the work includes cleaning drains, washing signs and tunnel walls, and repairing electrical and communication systems.

    “We don’t anticipate any major traffic volume between those hours,” Verseckes said. Signs will direct drivers along surface streets during the closure, he said.
