Lexington, Route 2 over I-95 Bridges, September 4, 2015MassDOT’s Route 2/I-95 Bridge Replacement Project moves forward in fall 2015 with upcoming work-related ramp closures.

The Exit 52A ramp from Route 2 East to I-95 South and Exit 29A from I-95 South to Route 2 East will be closed from 8:00 PM on Friday, October 2 through 5:00 AM on Monday, October 5.

The ramp closures are necessary to allow the contractor to install a new drain culvert across the exit ramps from the infield to the Hobbs Brook Reservoir. The detours map is available on the project website and the detour routes are described below:

  • Route 2 East to I-95 South – From Route 2 East, take Exit 52B to I-95 North, then immediately take Exit 29B to Route 2 West, and then immediately take Exit 52A onto I-95 South. 
  • I-95 South to Route 2 East – Follow I-95 South past Route 2, take Exit 28 for Trapelo Road, turn left onto Trapelo Road, turn right onto the on-ramp to I-95 North, follow I-95 North and then take Exit 29A to Route 2 East. 

The Route 2/I-95 Bridge Replacement Project will replace the existing bridges carrying Route 2 east and westbound over I-95 in Lexington, also called the Concord Turnpike.
