    Route 1 northbound traffic in Revere squeezes into one lane during fence construction along the median strip in 2008.

    There will be traffic closures and detours on a section of Route 1 in Malden and Revere during overnight weekend hours starting Friday, Sept. 22, through Oct. 29.

    The closures affect the north and southbound lanes between Lynn Street in Malden and Route 60 in Revere. The closures are needed to allow work crews to conduct deck repairs on the bridge that carries Route 1 over the Northern Strand Trail.

    Southbound will be closed from 11 p.m. Fridays through 7 a.m. Sundays. Traffic on both sides will be closed from 11 p.m. Saturdays through 8 a.m. Sundays. For the detours, drivers going south will exit at Lynn Street, and then turn left onto Salem Street, right onto Lynn Street, left onto Wesley Street, left onto Beach Street/Squire Road (Route 60), and proceed to Copeland Circle before getting back on Route 1.


    Drivers heading north will exit at Route 60 (Squire Road) at Copeland Circle, turn right onto Wesley Street, right onto Lynn Street, and left onto Salem Street before returning to Route 1.

    Signage, message boards, and police details will be in place throughout the detour routes.
