by | Jun 1, 2020 | Headlines, News

WORCESTER – Getting to Vernon Hill from I-290 may soon take a few more minutes than usual.

Beginning Monday, June 8, the left-hand turn from I-290 Westbound off-ramp at Exit 13 for Vernon St. and Kelley Square will be permanently eliminated.

All drivers will be forced to take a right-hand turn and enter the new peanut-shaped roundabout to travel up Vernon Street towards Vernon Hill.

According to MassDOT, this will help facilitate the flow of traffic towards and into the roundabout.
