BOSTON (CBS) — If you drive into the city from the North Shore, get ready for a major construction project along your commute.

State House News Service reports that the Tobin Bridge will undergo a major, three-year restoration project starting next spring.

MassDOT just approved a $41 million project to restore the bridge, which stretches over the Mystic River to connect Chelsea to Charlestown.

The work will begin on the northernmost stretch of the bridge approaching Chelsea.

The lower deck of the bridge will be repaired, while the upper deck is re-paved–meaning lane closings are in store.

Each year, one lane will be shut down full time for the work.

The project will begin each April and go through November for the next three years, and is scheduled to be completed in June of 2020.
