Cable Crossing to Force Overnight Stoppages at Mile 105

20-minute north and southbound stoppages Monday (3/3) through Thursday (3/6)


PORTLAND, Maine – Beginning Monday evening, March 3, 2014, 20-minute traffic stops will occur in both directions in Farmingdale at Mile 105 to allow Central Maine Power to install six transmission lines across the highway. Stoppages are scheduled to begin Monday night at 10:00 p.m. and will last until 5:00 a.m. each night through Thursday, March 6th.
Motorists should prepare alternate travel routes during the closures. Message boards will be in place to inform approaching travelers of closures, and Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) broadcasts on 1610 AM will also be used to inform drivers. The Maine Turnpike Authority appreciates motorists’ patience and understanding during this construction.
