New Maine Turnpike ramp to open in Lewiston

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A new northbound on-ramp on the Maine Turnpike at exit 80 is set to open.

The ramp opens Thursday. It is located where Interstate 95 intersects with Alfred A. Plourde Parkway in Lewiston.

Intermittent blasting is also scheduled to take place in the area starting July 15. Officials say the blasting will occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and last about a week.

State officials say future ramp closures may be required for more construction work. Message signs will inform drivers of closure dates a week before ramp closings.
