"The state Department of Transportation has outlined its plans to demolish existing tollbooths once the state's new All-Electronic Tolling systems go into effect on the Massachusetts Turnpike in October.
According to Highway Administrator Thomas Tinlin, toll plaza demolitions are set to begin at the same time the new system goes live on Oct. 28. Work crews will section off the center lanes of existing toll plazas, pushing traffic to the left and right as they tear down canopies and fill any underground tunnel systems beneath the structures.
Initial work is expected to be completed by Nov. 22, after which traffic will flow through the open center as crews tear down the remaining plazas on the sides of each turnpike entrance and exit. Speed limits for the exits will be set at 15 mph. Signs will help guide traffic."
