Temporary I-95 Ramps Opening in Maine

The Maine Department of Transportation reports that the new access points to Whitten Road will be used by all traffic taking I-95 to points south of Augusta and for those on I-95 southbound headed east towards downtown Augusta or the Capital Area.

Exit 109B will remain available for all I-95 southbound traffic headed west towards Manchester/Winthrop.

The southbound traffic pattern on Whitten Road remains the same. However, all northbound traffic on Whitten Road will encounter a new stop sign at the intersection of Whitten Road and the temporary southbound on ramp

Motorists should all extra time or consider using alternate routes such as Exit 112 or 113

Maine DOT is replacing a damaged overpass at the 109A interchange spanning I-95. The new bridge is expected to open later this winter.

Construction is weather dependent, so schedules are subject to change.

Long Term Ramp Closure on I-95 in Jacksonville

The Florida Department of Transportation reports that the I-95/I-10 construction project in Jacksonville will have a long-term closure of the ramp from Interstate 95 southbound to Stockton Street for approximately one year starting November 13.

The closure may extend longer than a year due to weather, holidays and other unforeseen delays.

As part of the project’s operational improvements, crews will be constructing new dedicated Stockton and Irene Street ramps in an overall effort to reduce weaving and improve operations on Interstate 10 at Interstate 95.

During this extended closure, motorists on Interstate 95 southbound can take the Forest Street exit to Margaret Street which turns into Edison Avenue or take Interstate 10 westbound and use the McDuff Avenue exit to Edison Avenue – both detours will reconnect to Stockton Street.

Detour signs will be posted to help redirect motorists affected by the closure as follows:

Interstate 95 southbound to Forest Street detour:

  • Motorists traveling on Interstate 95 southbound can take the Forest Street exit and make a right onto Forest Street then a left onto Margaret Street which turns into Edison Avenue which will reconnect to Stockton Street.

Interstate 95 southbound to Interstate 10 westbound detour:

  • Motorists traveling on Interstate 95 southbound can also take Interstate 10 westbound to the McDuff Avenue exit. Once at the exit, make a right on McDuff Avenue, then make another right on Edison Avenue which will reconnect with Stockton Street.

The project began in May with completion anticipated in summer 2020, depending on weather, holidays and unforeseen circumstances.

Construction Begins on Damaged Bridge Project on I-95 in Maine

The Maine Department of Transportation reports that construction has begun on a new set of temporary interstate ramps which will allow access between Whitten Road and I-95 Exit 109A.

MaineDOT expects the access to be available to the public in advance of the November 22nd deadline. While these ramps are being constructed, traffic headed southbound on the interstate as well as heading to the Capitol District or downtown should use Exit 113, Exit 112 or Exit 109B. All other movements remain unchanged from the current configuration.

Once completed, these new temporary access points to Whitten Road will be used by all traffic wishing to take I-95 to points south of Augusta and for those on I-95 southbound headed toward downtown Augusta or the Capital Area. Exit 109B will remain available for all I-95 southbound traffic headed west toward Manchester/Winthrop.

On October 3rd, a MaineDOT maintenance worker discovered the south exterior beam of the Ramp F Bridge over I-95 had been struck by a vehicle causing significant damage. There is currently a partial crack in the southern beam.

Another recent hit has damaged the north exterior beam of the same bridge but to a lesser extent. MaineDOT personnel will continue to monitor the damage on both sides of the bridge to ensure it remains safe under legal loads.

This bridge carries two-way traffic as part of the I-95 Exit 109 interchange as well as I-95 southbound traffic accessing Western Avenue headed east to the downtown and the Capitol complex. It also supports Western Avenue traffic bound for I-95 south.

Drivers are advised to find alternate routes. For more information and to sign up for email alerts, please visit mainedot.gov

MaineDOT has been investigating what may have caused this damage with little success to date. Anyone with any information is asked to call MaineDOT’s Legal Division at (207) 624-3020.

Driving to a Permanent Solution – When considering the significant effort, cost and traffic impacts associated with repairing the existing bridge, coupled with a strong likelihood of continued damage due to “over height” strikes, MaineDOT is accelerating a bridge construction contract to have a new bridge in place this winter.

As part of replacing the superstructure, we will increase the “under clearance” by over a foot to reduce the potential of future impacts and to be consistent with the clearances achieved with recent bridge projects over Interstate 95.

MaineDOT will also be installing an over-height load warning system to protect other bridges, such as the overpass carrying Western Avenue over I-95.

I-195 to I-95 Ramp Closures, Traffic Delays in Rhode Island

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) is alerting motorists on I-195 West in Providence to the possibility of delays because of work to repair bumpy pavement on a portion of the highway leading to I-95 South.

Construction is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Sunday night, November 5. It will involve the closure of one lane of travel on the ramp through the evening and overnight hours, reopening to traffic by 5 a.m. on Monday, November 6. This work will level the roadway, but result in a rough, milled driving surface.

The next night, Monday, November 6 paving work is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and last until 3 a.m. on Tuesday, November 7. The paving also requires the closure of one of the two lanes of travel on the ramp. This work is weather-dependent, and could be postponed due to rain.

The section of ramp being repaired is in a different location than where RIDOT repaired a depression in the roadway with a weekend-long lane closure last month. The second phase of that repair project will require another weekend lane closure. It is tentatively scheduled to take place from 7 p.m. on Friday, November 17 through 5 a.m. on Monday, November 20. Long delays should be expected from that work, and motorists should plan accordingly, either giving themselves extra time for travel or planning to take an alternate route.

I-95 Detour in Augusta Maine Begins Wednesday

Beginning on Wednesday, November 1, all southbound I-95 traffic at Exit 109 destined for Western Avenue in Augusta will be directed off Exit 109B onto Western Avenue westbound. Motorists traveling east on Western Avenue will need to proceed westerly to access one of the reverse direction loops at Edison Drive or Old Winthrop Road.

On October 3rd, a MaineDOT maintenance worker discovered the south exterior beam of the Ramp F Bridge over I-95 had been struck by a vehicle causing significant damage. There is currently a partial crack in the southern beam. Barrels have been placed along the south shoulder of the bridge to keep traffic off the damaged area.
Another recent hit has damaged the north exterior beam of the same bridge but to a lesser extent. MaineDOT personnel will continue to monitor the damage on both sides of the bridge to ensure it remains safe under legal loads.

On Saturday, October 28th, MaineDOT crews will work to pave and alter striping patterns. Motorists should expect slight delays.

This bridge carries two-way traffic as part of the I-95 Exit 109 interchange as well as I-95 southbound traffic accessing Western Avenue headed east to the downtown and the Capitol complex. It also supports Western Avenue traffic bound for I-95 south.

Drivers are advised to find alternate routes.

MaineDOT has been investigating what may have caused this damage with little success to date. Anyone with any information is asked to call MaineDOT’s Legal Division at (207) 624-3020.

Construction materials act differently under cold temperatures. Although the bridge is currently safe for all legal loads, the Department feels it is prudent to remove one lane of traffic from the bridge before cold weather arrives and then remove all traffic from the bridge so that construction of a new bridge may move as quickly as possible. The following is a plan to move quickly, while maintaining public safety and minimizing impacts to our customers.

Short Term – Beginning Wednesday, November 1st all I-95, Exit 109, south bound traffic destined for Western Avenue in Augusta will be directed off Exit 109B onto Western Avenue westbound. Traffic wanting to head east on Western Avenue will need to proceed westerly to access one of the reverse direction loops at Edison Drive or Old Winthrop Road. During this period, travelers will be advised to seek alternate routes as much as possible.

Mid Term– In three to five weeks, using accelerated contracting methods, a new set of temporary ramps will be built from Exit 109A onto Whitten Road. Travelers will then access Western Avenue from the Whitten Road Intersection. Exit 109B will resume as before serving westbound Western Avenue travel to Manchester, Winthrop, etc. Travelers wanting to access I-95 southbound from Western Avenue will do so from Whitten Road.

Permanent Solution – When considering the significant effort, cost and traffic impacts associated with repairing the existing bridge, coupled with a strong likelihood of continued damage due to “over height” strikes, MaineDOT is working rapidly to develop and execute plans to replace the entire Ramp F bridge superstructure. As part of replacing the superstructure, we will increase the “under clearance” by over a foot to reduce the potential of future impacts and to be consistent with the clearances achieved with recent bridge projects over Interstate 95.

The Department plans to implement accelerated construction techniques to have a new bridge in place before spring of 2018. However, that could be affected by the type of winter weather before us.

MaineDOT will also be installing an over-height load warning system to protect other bridges, such as the overpass carrying Western Avenue over I-95.
