Falmouth Spur turnpike ramps to close Monday
FALMOUTH — The Maine Turnpike Authority will close both southbound ramps connecting to the Falmouth Spur on Monday, May 13, to continue rehabilitating the Exit 52 interchange bridge, which carries Falmouth Spur traffic over the turnpike.
The MTA, in a press release Friday, said the closures are needed so construction crews can safely raise the bridge to increase clearance over the turnpike.
The southbound on-ramp to the turnpike from the Falmouth Spur will close for approximately one week, weather permitting. The southbound off-ramp from the turnpike to the Falmouth Spur will remain closed until November, when major construction activities are due to be completed.
The northbound on-ramp from the Falmouth Spur to the turnpike and the northbound off-ramp from the turnpike to the Falmouth Spur will remain open.
