PORTLAND — Paving between Exit 20 in Freeport and Exit 28 in Brunswick on Interstate 295 will force ramp closures beginning this week.
Ramps will be closed periodically, according to the Maine Department of Transportation. Crews will be working on the roads nightly from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Also, in Portland, the southbound on-ramp from Park Avenue will be closed until nearby work is completed on highway bridges. Motorists should also use caution in the area of the Washington Avenue northbound exit, where crews will begin to separate the local through-road over Tukey’s Bridge from the travel lanes on I-295.
Work on I-295 is expected to continue through the fall. For updates, go to mainedot.gov.
