Bridge construction could cause delays in Newport

Motorists who utilize Route 7 in Newport near the Corrinna town line should expect delays as construction continues on the Mulligan Stream Bridge. For the next 21 days, traffic will be limited to one-way, alternating traffic regulated by temporary signal lights.

The three-week lane closure is necessary as construction crews replace the Mulligan Stream Bridge. Crews will maintain one eleven-foot wide travel lane over the bridge during this period.

Motorists should expect delays during the morning and evening commutes.
