The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is announcing that the installation of new milepost-based signs for exits on Interstate 295, from North Attleboro to Attleboro, was scheduled to begin on Sunday, Jan. 3. The work is anticipated to be completed in two days. In addition, new exit signs are scheduled to be installed along Route 24, from Randolph to Fall River, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 5. Work along this corridor is anticipated to be completed in three weeks.

The milepost sign installation operations will take place on each corridor in the east to west or north to south direction, and will be conducted nightly during overnight hours from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following day.

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.

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