Local Roads
 
Hackett Road, Auburn:  Beginning on Monday, August 7, 2017 the Hackett Road Bridge in Auburn that carries traffic over the Maine Turnpike will be closed for construction.  The closure is expected to last for approximately 12 weeks.  The work consists of steel girder repairs due to an over height vehicle hit, raising of the bridge to avoid future over height hits, replacement of the wearing surface and repairs to the concrete deck and substructure.  In addition to the bridge repairs, a maintenance/emergency vehicle access ramp will be constructed during the closure.
The signed detour route during bridge rehabilitation will redirect traffic to Broad Street, to Witham Road, South Main Street and Old Danville Road.  The detour as signed is approximately 2.8 miles long.  The Hackett Road Bridge carries approximately 600 vehicles per day over the mainline of the Maine Turnpike. Message boards will be in place to inform approaching travelers of the closure. The Maine Turnpike Authority appreciates motorists’ patience and understanding during this construction.
