I-95/MA-128 concurrency ending?

Back from an out-of-state vacation on Friday, and I noticed that a number of 95/128 shields have been replaced with I-95 only.  Is the concurrency breathing its last?

Probably be a good idea to remove Route 128 from I-95, no need for the sign clutter for a state route to run concurrent with an Interstate for most of its length. Route 128 can remain for the road between Peabody and Gloucester.

When the MassPike interchange 123 was rebuilt to eliminate the toll booths, that's where I first saw references to 128 being eliminated.  None of the new signage on the Pike or the ramps mention 128, and that's already a few years ago.

I’m sure the people of Massachusetts will continue to refer to the Yankee Division Highway as Route 128 for all time, even if it isn’t signed along the Interstate 95 segment. If they were going to get rid of the portion of 128 along Interstate 95, old Exit 29 should have been renumbered as Exit 1, not as Exit 37.

When the signage along I-95 North in Canton was revised late last year, to account for a new fourth lane being extended for the I-93 North exit, the Route 128 trailblazers that were on the sign supports disappeared and have not returned:
