2012 season

Construction on Small Section of Route 3

Reconstruction of Route 3 begins with drainage installation on Sunday, August 19.  In order to minimize traffic impacts, MaineDOT has scheduled the work on Route 3 during overnight hours, beginning at 8 PM. All area businesses will be open and accessible during normal business hours.  Motorists should allow extra time.  The project includes reconstruction of one-tenth of a mile of Route 230 and six-tenths of a mile of Route 3 in the vicinity of Route 230 in Trenton.   It is anticipated that this work will continue through mid-November and then resume in the spring.  After Columbus Day weekend, construction on Route 3 and 230 may take place during the day.  All construction activity is weather-dependent so the schedule may change.
