STATEWIDE – A traffic advisory for motorists who plan to use Interstate-295 beginning Sunday.
The Maine Department of Transportation says a culvert under the northbound lanes has failed in Richmond and they’ll need to close those lanes to make repairs.
Those northbound lanes will be closed at noon Sunday and reopened once the work is completed on Wednesday.
Drivers will be forced to get off at exit 43 to detour around the area.
That should add about 15 minutes of travel time as drivers make their way north.
Speed limits will also be lowered along that stretch while the work is being carried out.
