Gorham Route 25
MaineDOT, the Town of Gorham and the Portland Water District have partnered together to make significant improvements to the Route 25 corridor in Westbrook and Gorham. MaineDOT has awarded the $8.9M contract to Shaw Brothers Construction of Gorham to complete the work. The project will include the replacement of traffic signals in Gorham at South Street, Elm Street, New Portland Road and Libby Avenue. The project will also make improvements to the subsurface drainage and replace the water main between South Street and Pine Street in Gorham. In the area between South Street and Gray Road, the Department will be replacing curb, sidewalk and improving pedestrian facilities. The entire corridor from Conant Street in Westbrook to the Route 25 Roundabout in Gorham will be repaved over the course of the project. The project began in June 2019 and the anticipated completion date is August 2020.
The project area begins where Route 25 intersects with Cressey Road in Gorham and extends east for approximately five miles ending at the southern intersection of Route 25 and Conant Street in Westbrook. Two-way traffic will be maintained during daytime operations with lane shifts. There will be one-way, alternating traffic when the contractor is working at night work. All travel way milling and paving will be done at night. All partners ask for travelers to pay attention to flaggers, police officers and traffic control devices and patience with all roadway workers as we complete these much needed infrastructure improvements.
