Readying the ramp for traffic
The I-91 NB ramp to Route 5/15 SB has been temporarily closed since June 3, 2019, with a detour route in place, to facilitate the lowering of Routes 5/15 SB under I-91, a major stage of construction activity, as part of the Project.
 
The ramp reopening will reduce the travel time commuters have been experiencing following the detour.
