Maine Turnpike ramp project delayed by storm

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Maine transportation officials say the snowstorm has delayed the closing of the southbound off ramp for motorists exiting the Maine Turnpike to the Falmouth Spur.

The closing had been scheduled for this week, but the contractor is now delaying that until next Monday, March 25, weather permitting. The winter storm delayed work to prepare the ramp for closing and equipment setup.

The project to rehabilitate the Exit 52 Falmouth Spur interchange bridge over the Maine Turnpike will be completed in phases and limit southbound access to and from it until the project is completed in November.

Commuters who currently travel southbound from points north of Exit 52 are encouraged to plan ahead and seek alternate routes before the start of the project.
