AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine transportation officials say the northbound on-ramp of Interstate 95 in Augusta will be temporarily closed.

The closure of the northbound on-ramp at Exit 113 takes effect Monday. It's due to comprehensive improvement of the interchange and nearby roadways and intersections to ease congestion and improve traffic flow with construction of the new regional hospital known as the Alfond Center for Health.

Drivers wishing to enter I-95 northbound lanes from Route 3 and north Augusta will be guided to a detour on Route 104 to the northbound on-ramp at Exit 120 in Sidney.

Funding for the $13 million project includes a mix of federal, state, city and private funds from the medical center.

The Alfond Center for Health is scheduled to open in November.
