Repairs set to begin on Buttermilk Cove bridge in Brunswick

MaineDOT bridge maintenance crews are set to begin repair work on the Buttermilk Cove Bridge in Brunswick, which carries Prince’s Point Road over a narrow section of Buttermilk Cove. Construction is set to begin Monday, July 19.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane during the duration of the 8-week project, and will be regulated by “STOP” and “Proceed When Clear” traffic signs.

Crews will be removing and then replacing the bridge’s traveling surface. If there are no weather-related delays, the project is expected to be completed within eight weeks.

Motorists are asked to obey all traffic signs and drive carefully through the construction zone.
