I-95 Exit 113 Northbound On-Ramp In Augusta To Reopen Monday Afternoon

Augusta – The northbound on-ramp of I-95 Exit 113 in Augusta will reopen Monday afternoon, June 3. The on-ramp had been closed temporarily beginning April 22nd, with traffic detoured via Route 104 to Exit 120 in Sidney. The on-ramp closure and detour allowed crews to reconstruct the Exit 113 northbound on-ramp.

Monday’s re-opening of the northbound on-ramp at Exit 113 is occurring as planned, according to Exit 113 Project Manager Shawn Smith of MaineDOT. “Despite some weather challenges, we were able to complete the reconstruction of the northbound on-ramp on schedule” Smith said. He added, “We’re making good progress, and we really appreciate the cooperation and understanding of drivers passing through our work zones.”

The Exit 113 construction is part of the comprehensive improvement of the interchange and nearby roadways and intersections. The project has been designed to minimize congestion at Exit 112 and improve traffic flow, convenience and safety between Route 3, the Old Belgrade Road, Route 27 and I-95 where the new Alfond Center for Health is being built. Two new roundabouts and two new signalized intersections are also being constructed. Old Belgrade Road will be widened to four lanes between a new roundabout on the west side of I-95 Exit 113 and the new medical center.
