Traffic Advisory Issued For Monday Through Thursday

BOSTON -- Several onramps to the Massachusetts Turnpike will be closed for the morning hours next week for a four-day drill that will simulates a fire in an HOV tunnel.

The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, state police and the Boston Fire Department will conduct the drill next week in the HOV tunnel to Interstate 90 east near South Station.

The onramps to the HOV lane from Frontage Road northbound and from Kneeland Street will be closed 9:30 a.m. to noon during the exercise, which starts Monday.
The exercise will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday through Thursday. Fire and police personnel will be visible both responding to and around the area during the drill times. All radio contact will begin by noting that the event is a drill.

The drill will test water flow through the tunnel's fire suppression system, as well as the tunnel's ventilation system. A vehicle will be used to simulate the fire, but no fire will be lit inside the tunnel.
