PORTLAND, Maine – On Friday, September 26th between 9:30 AM and 12:00 PM, 10-minute stoppages will occur in both directions in approach of the New Gloucester toll plaza to allow Central Maine Power to safely install lines across the highway.

Motorists should allow additional travel time and be prepared to stop during any stoppage.
