Exit 46 Ramps Scheduled for Rounds of Night Closures

--Motorists can use Exit 45 (Maine Mall Road) during ramp closures --

PORTLAND, Maine – On Wednesday, June 3, 2015, Thursday, June 4, 2015 and Sunday, June 7, 2015, nightly closures will occur at Exit 46 (Jetport Exit) on the Maine Turnpike.  Each night a different ramp at Exit 46 will be closed for milling of pavement.  Details of each ramp closure will be posted via variable message boards to inform drivers on Skyway Drive and advise motorists to use Exit 45 (Maine Mall Rd). Closures each night will begin at approximately 7:30 p.m. and will last through 5:30 a.m. the following morning, beginning with the Exit 46 southbound off ramp on Sunday night.  All work is weather dependent. 
 
This work is being performed by CPM Contractors of Freeport, Maine. The project will last until August and will  require additional nighttime ramp closures for paving in the near future.  Notice of those additional closures will be provided.
