Alternating One-Way Traffic Begins on Route 9 Bridge in Falmouth (6/18)

Signalized one-way traffic begins at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow – will last throughout the summer

PORTLAND, Maine – Beginning on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at approximately 7:00 a.m., the Route 9 Bridge in Falmouth, that carries traffic over the Turnpike mainline, will temporarily go to one-way alternating traffic for concrete deck repairs.  The bridge will remain open to alternating one-way traffic throughout the summer with the use of a signalized light.  The bridge will reopen to two-way traffic before school begins in the fall.

Motorists should expect delays or seek alternate routes during the construction.  Message boards will be in place to inform approaching travelers of the construction.  The Maine Turnpike Authority appreciates motorists’ patience and understanding during this construction.  For more information on this project please visit http://www.maineturnpike.com/project-and-planning/Current-Projects/Route-9-Bridge-Repairs-Paving.aspx.
