PORTLAND, Maine – Beginning Monday evening, August 3, 2015, traffic stops of up to 25-minutes will occur in both directions in Litchfield at Mile 99 on the Maine Turnpike for the placement of structural steel at the Lunts Hill Road Bridge.  Stoppages are scheduled to occur for two nights: Monday, August 3, 2015 and Tuesday, August 4, 2015 with Wednesday, August 5, 2015 reserved as a rain date.  A series of up to 25-minute stoppages will occur each night between 10:00 p.m. and will last until 5:00 a.m. the following morning.
