East Lyme's I-95 south Exit 74 ramps to close for four days
East Lyme — The Department of Transportation has announced that the Interstate 95 south on- and off-ramps at Exit 74 will be closed from 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 through 6 a.m. Oct. 20.
The closure is necessary, DOT said, and will help facilitate construction activity associated with the realignment of the ramps near Costco, which is scheduled to open Nov. 14. The finished roadwork will help accommodate an expected influx of traffic once the store opens.
The work is being performed by Costco developers and contractors Cherry Hill Construction Inc.
Detour signs will direct I-95 southbound traffic to Exit 73 at East Society Road, while drivers trying to access I-95 south from Flanders Road will be directed south on Route 161 then west on Route 156 to the Exit 72 ramps.
The I-95 north on-ramp at Exit 74 also will be closed Tuesday until 6 a.m. Wednesday as part of the project.
DOT said that all road work associated with the Costco project in the Exit 74 interchange area is scheduled to be completed Nov. 14.
