SOUTH PORTLAND – Exit 4 on I-295 northbound, which leads to the Veterans Memorial Bridge, will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday and Tuesday.

In addition, the ramp from Route 1 in South Portland that leads to the bridge will remain closed around the clock until May 4.

The closings are required to allow workers to construct the south approaches to the new Veterans Memorial Bridge, expected to open this summer.

Detour signs will be posted for drivers to find their way around the closed ramps.
