MassPike (and other Highway) Exits Numbers To Change

FRAMINGHAM – In order to be eligible for federal funding, the exit numbers on Massachusetts highways will be changing, announced the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT).

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts uses a sequential numbering system, like New Hampshire and Delaware.

But the other 47 states all use a mileage-based exit numbering system.

Maine in 2014 switches to comply to the new 2009 federal mandate, and now Massachusetts will be doing the same.

MassDOT announced it will change the Massachusetts exit numbers to reflect the mileage system, mandated by the federal government.

Basically the exit numbers will reflect how many miles into the Commonwealth of Massachusetts you are at the exit.

The new exit numbers were not released for the MassPike or other Massachusett highways.

MassDOT said new signs will start appearing as early as summer 2020 and will be completed by spring 2021.

The new exit numbers were not released for the MassPike or other Massachusett highways.
