The Tobin will be down to two lanes of traffic just in time for the Monday morning commute. It’s all part of a $45 million paint and repair project.

“This company is doing a full stripping of the paint, they sand blast it off, do any structural repairs that need to be done and then prime it and give it a good top coat,” Highway Administrator Frank DePaola said. “The paint should last 10 to 15 years.”

As for the lane closures, expect delays for a while.

“It will last through the entire construction season until the end of November,” DePaola said.
