BOSTON (CBS) — With the 2013 construction season winding down and daily temperatures falling, the state Department of Transportation is trying to finish several resurfacing projects on Greater Boston highways.

On Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m. and set to continue through 8 p.m., multiple lane closures were set on the section of Route 128 South/Interstate-93 North in the area between Ponkapoag Trail (Exit 3) and Route 24 (Exit 4) in Milton and Randolph. The road closures allowed work crews to complete roadway paving operations, a DOT spokeswoman said.

The ramp from I-93 North to Route 24 South (Exit 4) was restricted to one lane during the majority of the time the work was being completed.
