FALMOUTH — The Maine Turnpike Authority has announced that it plans to close the northbound and southbound Exit 53 off-ramps in West Falmouth.

The closures will go into effect starting at 9 p.m. Wednesday to give crews the time they will need to pave the ramps. The ramps will reopen at 5 a.m. Thursday.

Dan Morin, spokesman for the MTA, said the work is weather sensitive and could be delayed or rescheduled.
