This exit list contains both the current exit number and proposed exit number if/when MassDOT converts MA 140 to the Geographic Reference or Milepost Exit Numbering system. MassDOT awarded a contract to replace the exit numbers in December 2015 and was supposed to be switching over routes in western and southern parts of the state in 2016, however the project now has been indefinitely postponed. The proposed numbers provided were based on contract documents provided by the MassDOT Highway Division for the postponed project, and may be subject to change.

*Recommended Changes: MassDOT was to review the proposed exit numbers for possible changes prior to work to create the new exit tabs. If the project ever goes forward, here's a change I'd suggest:

Changing the number for the Chace Road exit. The proposed number, 10, is inconsistent with the rest of the exit numbers in that it isn't rounded down. To be consistent, signing it as Exit 9 would be better.
