Traffic alert: Bridge to be closed nights all next week

For those motorists who commute to and from Westbrook, especially those commuting early in the morning or late at night, this is of note.

I got this in from the Maine Department of Transportation regarding the closure of the Little Bridge for night work:

With recent approval from the Westbrook City Council, crews will be closing the “Little Bridge” on East Bridge Street, from Monday, November 14 through Friday, November 18 from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. This temporary night closure will allow work crews to accelerate earthwork and paving so the project can be completed and open to two-way traffic by December 7th. East Bridge Street is adjacent to Route 302.

Westbound traffic will be allowed from 6 a.m. to 7 pm. Eastbound traffic, from Route 302, will be detoured to Prides Corner, Pride Street, Austin Street and then onto East Bridge Street.

All area business will remain open and accessible.
