PORTLAND, Maine – Weather permitting, crews will continue pavement upgrades this week to the Exit 42 (Scarborough) and Exit 45 (Maine Mall Road - Payne Road) interchanges. The temporary closures are scheduled at night to minimize impact to traffic. All times are approximate.

Portable electronic message boards are now in place near the work areas to alert drivers of the ramp closures.
Turnpike travelers can expect additional ramp closures throughout the week at Exit 42 (Scarborough) and more possibly at Exit 45 (Maine Mall Road - Payne Road).
