Yeah, yeah, I know. This makes the fourth straight blog post alerting drivers about road construction and summer traffic delays — I might as well rename this blog “Seth and the Traffic Jam.”
That said, I hate being surprised by road work and being thrown off schedule while sitting motionless on what are supposed to be steadily moving streets, so I feel obligated to pass along word of construction and delays when I hear of them. That way we can all plan to find alternative routes or build more time into our commutes. Here’s the latest from the Maine Department of Transportation:
Paving work will be starting Sunday evening, June 24th on Route 22 in Gorham approximately 700 feet east of the intersection of South Street (Route 114) and extending just over three miles to the intersection of Broad Turn Road in Scarborough. This will be night work between the hours of 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., wrapping up in mid-July.
Alternating one-way traffic will be in place with flaggers on scene to help guide motorists through the area.
This paving work, being performed by Pike Industries, Inc. of Westbrook, is weather dependant, so dates may change accordingly.
