BOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that it will begin installing new milepost-based signs for all exits on Interstate 95. The sign installation operations will begin tonight, Thursday, February 25, and are expected to continue through the week of February 28. The work was previously scheduled to begin on Tuesday, February 23, but was delayed due to recent inclement weather.

The work along the Interstate 95 corridor is expected to take approximately 10 weeks to complete and has been broken up into four construction segments as follows:

  • Interstate 95 between the New Hampshire border and Route 128
  • Interstate 95 between the Route 1 interchange and Route 20
  • Interstate 95 between the Interstate 90 interchange and Westwood and Canton
  • Interstate 95 between Neponset Street and the Rhode Island border

Sign installation operations on Interstate 84 in Sturbridge, from the U.S. 20 interchange to the Connecticut border, will begin on Sunday, February 28, and will take place nightly during overnight hours from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. the following day.  The work is anticipated to be completed in one week.

All work is weather dependent and construction dates may be adjusted as conditions warrant.

MassDOT’s Statewide Exit Renumbering Project is converting all exit numbers on roadways, per Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirements. Previous to this project, interstates and major roadways in Massachusetts have always utilized a sequential exit numbering method.

For information on the scheduled installations, please visit: https://newmassexits.com/#it-schedule. If needed, a GIS shapefile with the specific numbering information is available on Massachusetts’ GeoDOT site.
