THE MAINE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION SAYS DAYTIME CULVERT REPLACEMENT WORK WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THURSDAY ON A 500 FOOT SECTION OF ROUTE 113 IN FRYEBURG, MAINE ABOUT 2,000 FEET SOUTH OF CORN SHOP ROAD – AND TRAFFIC WILL BE DIVERTED.

AS THAT WORK CONTINUES, SO DOES WORK TO REPLACE THE LITTLE POND BRIDGE ON ROUTE 302 IN FRYEBURG, ABOUT A HALF MILE FROM HARVEST HILLS ANIMAL SHELTER AND THE BRIDGTON TOWN LINE.

DOT SPOKESMAN TED TALBOT SAYS THE WORK INVOLVES COMPLETELY REPLACING THE BRIDGE.

TRAFFIC LIGHTS HAVE BEEN SET UP TO CONTROL 2-WAY TRAFFIC THROUGH A SINGLE LANE THAT REMAINS OPEN. TALBOT SAYS BOTH LANES WILL BE OPEN FOR TRAFFIC DURING THE FRYEBURG FAIR SEPT. 30 – OCT. 7.

TALBOT SAYS THE PROJECT COULD COST AS MUCH AS $800,000 AND IS SCHEDULED TO BE FINISHED BY THE END OF OCTOBER.
