The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is set to begin a two-year construction project on the Tobin Bridge that will mean major traffic delays for Boston commuters.

Repairs begin on Route 1's northbound lanes in Charlestown Monday, with daytime traffic down to just two lanes. At night, one lane will be closed.

Similar construction work will also affect southbound lanes in Chelsea starting next month.

Massachusetts Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver joined WBUR's Morning Edition host Bob Oakes to talk about the project.

This segment aired on April 1, 2019.
