Centennial Bridge in Kingfield is Down to One Lane
Oversized Vehicles Being Detoured
Beginning Monday, June 24th, a project to replace the wearing surface of the Centennial Bridge in Kingfield will begin. The Centennial Bridge spans the Carrabassett River on Route 16. The project is expected to continue through August and will extend the useful life of this historic bridge.
One lane of traffic will be maintained during construction using temporary traffic signals. Due to the narrow lane on the bridge and the sharp bend in the road at the north end of the bridge, traffic will be restricted to cars, and pickup trucks hauling small trailers. Large trucks, buses and recreation vehicles must use the signed detour on Route 27 and Route 234.
A sidewalk on the bridge will remain open. The end of Maple Street in Kingfield will be closed during construction and traffic will be rerouted to Stanley Avenue. Multiple parking spots along Route 27 will be unavailable due to the temporary traffic signal on Route 27. Drivers in downtown Kingfield are encouraged to use municipal parking on either side of Main Street.
High Street and School Street are signed for local traffic only. Drivers should not use High Street or School Street to bypass the temporary traffic signal on Route 27.
Drivers leaving Anni’s Market will need to exit out on to Route 27/Main Street. The entrance from Route 16/Lexington Road to Anni’s Market is enter only.
MaineDOT regrets this inconvenience andurges motorists to drive carefully throughthe work zone and along the detour route.
Construction is weather-dependent so the schedule may change.
