This will be a great weekend to stay in Newton.

Starting tonight at 8 p.m. (Friday Nov. 4) Highland Ave. over Route I-95 will be closed to all traffic in order to allow for the demolition of the old bridge crossing over the interstate. Traffic on I-95 will be detoured over the on-off ramps at Highland, which is why Highland has to be closed this weekend only but stores and restaurants will remain open. The bridge and I-95 will be fully operational by early Monday, in time for the morning commute.
