Until 1987, Route 25 ended at its current Exit 1 interchange with US 6 and Route 28.

Business owners along US 6 in Buzzards Bay also opposed the project, claiming traffic, and much of their revenue, would completely bypass the town. A deal with local farm owners, where the state would provide sand to absorbe runoff, as well as a slight realignment to the freeway, led to the approval and later construction of its current alignment to the Bourne Bridge.
