MaineDOT News -- Preliminary Construction Begins On Route 1 Bridge in Princeton and Indian Township
Preliminary construction has begun on the Princeton Bridge that carries Route 1 over the Grand Falls flowage between Princeton and Indian Township in Washington County.
Crews will be installing a single-lane temporary bridge that will serve as a detour while the old bridge is removed. When crews start to remove the old bridge, traffic will be switched over to the temporary bridge. One-way, alternating traffic over the temporary bridge will be regulated by temporary signal lights.
During construction of the temporary bridge, there may be lane closures with one-way, alternating traffic regulated by flaggers. Motorists could experience delays during construction.
Once the old bridge is removed, crews will build new abutments and piers to support the concrete beams of the new bridge. Work on the new bridge is expected to be completed by August of 2012.
CPM Constructors of Freeport is the contractor for the $2.6 million project.
