FALMOUTH — Motorists who use the Falmouth Spur northbound from the Maine Turnpike in Westbrook to Interstate 295 in Falmouth will encounter a short detour in order to access I-295 northbound in Falmouth.

In order to make the I-295 northbound Falmouth Spur on-ramp safer, crews will be lengthening the acceleration lane. The on-ramp will be closed for about four to eight weeks while under construction.

During construction, motorists will be detoured to I-295 northbound via Route 1 and the Bucknam Road on-ramp.
