PORTLAND, Maine – Beginning on Monday, April 27, 2015 at approximately 7:00 a.m., the Clay Hill Road Bridge in York will be closed for repairs.  The closure is expected to last for approximately three weeks. The work consists of adding a new bridge wearing surface, deck repairs and concrete repairs to the substructure.
The signed detour route during bridge rehabilitation will redirect traffic to Logging Road, to Mountain Road and to Greenleaf Parsons Road.  The detour as signed is approximately 5.5 miles.  The Clay Hill Road Bridge carries approximately 1,000 vehicles per day over the mainline of the Maine Turnpike.
Clay Hill Road Bridge is one of five structures included in the $1 million project awarded to Scott Construction of Falmouth.  The project consists of various improvements and repairs to bridges, culverts and ramps south of Mile 11 on the Maine Turnpike.  
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.
