Exit 113 bridge in Augusta to close for three months

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA  — A well-traveled Interstate 95 interchange bridge in Augusta is shutting down for about three months.

The Department of Transportation says the bridge leading from the Exit 113 ramp from the southbound lanes of I-95 to Route 3 eastbound will close starting Monday as part of comprehensive $13 million project. The project will improve the interchange and nearby roads and intersections to ease congestion and improve traffic flow with construction of the new regional hospital known as the Alfond Center for Health.

Officials say signs will direct traffic to an alternate route.

The department also says the interchange ramp leading from Route 3 to the northbound lanes of I-95 is slated to re-open on May 31. It closed to traffic in April as part of the project.
