On Wednesday, July 11th starting at 7:00AM, the Exit 18 ramp (128 North) will be closed to all traffic to complete work on the Centerville roundabout. A section of Route 22/Essex Street (including the roundabout) will also be closed to cars during this time. Cars driving north on Route 22/Essex Street toward Centerville will be detoured at Cole Street. Cars driving south on Route 22/Essex Street out of Centerville will be detoured onto Route 128 South by Harry Ball Little League Field.
As of now, we expect Route 22/Essex Street to be reopened to traffic on Friday, July 13th at 7:00AM. The Exit 18 ramp (128 North) will remain closed throughout the day on Friday with an expected opening time of 4:00PM. However, these times are subject to change. Thank you for your patience as we continue work to improve our Beverly infrastructure.
