This exit list contains both the new exit number and old exit number after MassDOT converted I-195 to the Geographic Reference or Milepost Exit Numbering system in November 2020. MassDOT started converting exit numbers statewide on October 18, 2020 starting with exits on routes in the eastern and southern parts of the state. This project was first planned for 2016, but eventually postponed.

*Numbers in ( ) are proposed exit numbers for the postponed 2016 renumbering project.

**While most work was completed in early November, work to renumber the easternmost exit, I-495/MA 25 does not appear to have been completed until November 23.

**The federal MUTCD would allow I-195 to have one set of numbers covering both Rhode Island and Massachusetts (RI as of December 2019 is renumbering it's exits to milepost based numbers). I sent a comment to MassDOT regarding why they did not consider this in their proposed future exit numbers for I-195 (and also for I-295 and I-395). Their response:

"MassDOT has considered this option for these routes.  Resetting the exit numbers at the Massachusetts border, as occurs now, provides travelers with an additional cue that they’ve crossed over into a different state.  It is our judgement (sic) that this will aid driver navigation better than continuing the adjacent state’s exit number sequences into Massachusetts will."
