Freetown Route 24 Interchange 8b The Freetown Route 24 Interchange 8B project continues this month with the installation of the wildlife crossing underneath the highway, one of several project components currently underway.

To allow for the crossing installation, temporary overnight full closures of Route 24 northbound and southbound will occur on certain nights during September beginning tonight.  Closures will not impact traffic during morning and evening peak commuting times.  

Route 24 southbound is scheduled to be closed tonight, September 15, from approximately 8pm to 5am and on Friday night, September 16, from 8pm to 12pm Noon on Saturday, September 17.

Route 24 northbound is scheduled to be closed Friday night, September 23, from 8pm until 12pm Noon, Saturday, September 24.  Dates assume favorable weather conditions.

Detoured southbound traffic will exit Route 24 at Exit 9 – Route 79 North Freetown and Middleborough and travel south along Route 79, also known as South Main Street and reenter the highway at the new Executive Park Drive on-ramp at interchange 8B. 

Detoured northbound traffic will exit Route 24 at the Executive Park Drive off-ramp at interchange 8B and travel north along Route 79 to the Exit 9 interchange where it can reenter Route 24.

The Route 24 Interchange 8B project funded by the federal stimulus American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will create a new interchange in Freetown between the existing exits 8 and 9.  The new interchange will reduce congestion at exits 8 and 9 and on South Main Street while providing access to the new Fall River Executive Park.
