**Update** Rescheduled to next weekend, no reason given~!

The MASS DOT announced on its twitter feed earlier today that parts of Rte 24, specifically those in Fall River will be affected by closures starting this Friday, May 14th. Earlier this week highway information signs were warning drivers that the on ramps in both direction off rte 195 heading on to rte 24 were going to be closed.

DOT Announcement:

“Beginning tomorrow, Rt 24 northbound and southbound #FallRiver closed for travel from 8:00pm Friday, May 14, until 5:00am Monday, May 17. Rt 24 closed for culvert work. Detour in place.”

Earlier this week the Fall River Reporter had more specifics on the closure: https://fallriverreporter.com/culvert-installation-on-route-24-in-fall-river-to-lead-to-multiple-detours-beginning-this-week/
