State Library Needs Help Identifying "Mystery Photos" of Construction Sites in MA

Figured this would be appropriate for AB:

Officials from the State Library on Monday reached out to the public for help identifying a series of old black-and-white photographs of busy work sites that were taken somewhere, at some point in time, in Massachusetts.

“The State Library needs some assistance with identifying photographs in its collection!,” officials wrote on, above the five pictures they’re hoping to gather information about. “They were probably taken in Boston (or at least Massachusetts) and depict various construction projects.”
Here's the article:

And the Flickr account with the photos is here:

I'm getting a kick out of "They were probably taken in Boston..." The top image on the article is I-391 with, I believe, Holyoke and Mt. Tom in the background. Another one looks to be the the I-90/I-391 interchange (also under construction). Both probably within 2 years of 1980. So at least 2 of 5 are definitely not in Boston.
