PORTLAND — A ramp improvement project is underway at Interstate 295 Exit 6 at Forest Avenue.

The $1.71 million Maine Department of Transportation project is designed to alleviate traffic backups on the ramps while improving accommodations for pedestrian and bicycle traffic on Forest Avenue.

Included in the scope of the work are narrowed ramp lanes, flashing beacons to mark crossings, and narrowed lanes and wider sidewalks on Forest Avenue.

Work is scheduled from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. daily through mid-September.
