HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) - A closed on-ramp by the Holyoke Mall has been causing a lot of headaches. The 22News I-Team discovered when the ramp will re-open.
Friday morning, before rush hour, that's what MassDOT spokesman Mike Verseckes told 22News.
It's the only ramp by the Holyoke Mall that takes you onto I-91 South, and it's been closed for more than two months.
Local business owners weren't made aware of the closing. The detours have been tricky for drivers that don't know the back roads around the mall. It's been frustrating for a lot of people.
"I drive by it everyday going to work I work Monday through Friday at the mall right here and I've never seen anybody working on that on-ramp. and it's been closed for quite some time now," said Chester's Russ Trautwig.
"The next time I come through this area I wouldn't get off this exit again. That's for sure, this gas station will probably lose because I won't get off that exit next time," said Russ Trautwig of New York City.
He won't have to worry about that. The ramp is expected to open Friday morning.
