If you’re traveling on Route 1 Monday, be prepared for delays: Construction work and lane closures on the Tobin Bridge have begun.

As of late Sunday night, the right lane on the Tobin Bridge northbound is closed. MassDOT has asked drivers to merge into the middle and left lanes as early as they can safely do so to keep traffic moving.

Additional lane closures on the Chelsea Curves section of Route 1 north and southbound will begin in early May, according to MassDOT.

Transportation officials warned drivers to plan for delays. The project is expected to last for the next two years.
