This exit list contains both the current exit number and old sequential number after MassDOT converted Route 140 to the Geographic Reference or Milepost Exit Numbering system in October 2020. This project was first planned for 2016, but eventually postponed. MassDOT announced in September 2020 that Route 140 would be the first highway to receive new exit numbers, renumbering took place between October 18 and 22. Tabs with the old exit number are posted on the first advance exit sign and at the exit, these will stay up for at least 2 years.
