I-95 Exit 1 Northbound Ramp Closure Delayed Due to Impending Storm

Closure now scheduled for March 27, 2018

KITTERY, Maine- The I-95 Exit 1 northbound off ramp closure that was scheduled to begin tonight at 12:01 a.m. has been rescheduled due to the impending storm.  The closure is now scheduled to occur beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.   The ramp, located in Kittery, will be closed in order to perform repairs to the Dennett Road overpass bridge along the Maine Turnpike.  The Exit 1 northbound ramp is expected to be closed until June 22, 2018.  The closure is necessary during construction in order to preserve public safety by maintaining three lanes of traffic in each direction on the mainline of the Turnpike.

VMS Boards and detour signs will be in place during the closure.  The Exit 1 southbound on ramp will also be closed for up to 28 days beginning in mid-May. More information will be provided pertaining to the southbound closure once the details are more defined.   

“We are working to ensure that Exit 1 is reopened before we get into the month of July and traffic volume from tourists picks up,” said MTA spokesperson Erin Courtney.  “It was better for us to do the work this spring and get out before summer traffic explodes.”

During the closures, construction crews will perform bridge repairs and modifications to the Dennett Road Overpass Bridge. The scope of work includes a new pavement surface on the northbound bridge, guardrail updates and concrete deck repairs. The Dennett Road project is approximately $890,000 of a $1.3 million contract awarded to CPM Constructors of Freeport.
