Overnight Stoppages at Mile 106.9 for Placement of Structural Steel

25-minute north and southbound stoppages beginning Monday, August 25

PORTLAND, Maine – Beginning Monday evening, August 25, 2014, 25-minute traffic stops will occur in both directions in Hallowell at Mile 106.9 for the placement of structural steel at the Litchfield Road Bridge.  Stoppages are scheduled to occur for three nights at this location beginning Monday, August 25, 2014 and going through Thursday morning, August 28, 2014.    A series of 25-minute stoppages will occur each night between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. the following morning.  All work is weather dependent.
Motorists should prepare for delays or seek alternate travel routes during the stoppages. 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.
The $1.5 million project, awarded to Wyman & Simpson of Richmond, Maine, began in March 2014 and includes replacement and raising of the existing bridge superstructure to provide a minimum vertical clearance of 15'-6”, and repair of the existing abutments and piers. It also includes reconstruction of approximately 500 feet of the bridge approaches to match the raised bridge structure. The project will be completed in the fall of 2014.
