Huge Green Highway Sign Falls Onto Interstate 190 In Worcester

August 9, 2022

Rush-hour right-lane traffic on Interstate I-190 southbound in Worcester ended temporarily Tuesday morning when a large green highway sign fell down on the highway.

State highway officials got reports of the sign being down around 7 a.m. Tuesday, August 9, a Massachusetts Department of Transportation spokesman told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

A tweet from the state agency called it “a damaged overhead sign,” but a photo given to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and published by the newspaper shows the pole bent and part of the sign resting on the pavement.

The sign marked an exit for Route 12, Gold Star Boulevard, and West Boylston Street.

The lanes re-opened around 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

Engineers are examining all of the supports for overhead signs on Route I-190, a spokesman told the newspaper.
