Possible Delays During Peak Hours for Travelers Headed Southbound Sunday

York River Bridge (Mile 5) southbound will be down to two lanes over Holiday weekend

PORTLAND, Maine –  Travelers headed southbound on the Maine Turnpike this Sunday, November 29, 2015 could experience some delays in the vicinity of the York River Bridge at Mile 5.   Between the hours of 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM when traffic is expected to be the heaviest, there could be congestion southbound in this area.  Please use caution when approaching this area and be prepared to slow down.
The bridge is down to two lanes currently as part of an ongoing rehabilitation project which includes a new bridge wearing surface, deck and pile jacket repairs, and concrete repairs to the substructure.   The bridge is expected to be back to three southbound lanes at some point next week.  Northbound, currently three lanes are available during peak travel times and work continues when traffic allows for temporary lane closures.
