Falmouth Spur Southbound Ramps To Close Tuesday

Southbound Pike off-ramp to Spur will close until November

PORTLAND, Maine – The Maine Turnpike Authority will close both southbound ramps connecting to the Falmouth Spur on Tuesday, May 14 to continue rehabilitating the Exit 52 Interchange Bridge which carries Falmouth Spur traffic over the Turnpike.  
 
The closures are needed so construction crews can safely raise the bridge to increase the under clearance over the Turnpike. The southbound on-ramp to the Turnpike from the Falmouth Spur will close for approximately one week, weather permitting. The southbound off-ramp from the Turnpike to the Falmouth Spur will remain closed until November when major construction activities are completed. Access to both ramps will be restricted before sunrise.
 
The northbound on-ramp from the Falmouth Spur to the Turnpike and the northbound off-ramp from the Turnpike to the Falmouth Spur will remain open.
 
Ramp closure dates and alerts were posted Monday on electronic message signs approaching to the project area. The MTA apologizes for the any inconvenience and encourages drivers to take an alternate route and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely. Motorists should also be aware of Maine Department of Transportation nightly closures for bridge repairs leading to I-295 from Turnpike Exit 45.
 
The $3.5 million Turnpike project, awarded to CPM Constructors of Freeport, consists of rehabilitating the Exit 52 Falmouth Spur Interchange bridge superstructure over the Maine Turnpike. The work also includes partial replacement of the concrete bridge deck, replacement of the bridge railings, concrete substructure modifications, repairs and approach work.
 
The MTA strives to keep drivers informed about planned Turnpike lane closures and travel alerts, but there is a possibility that unscheduled work may occur. Weather and unforeseen project delays can also affect a project schedule.
