Crews to close lane on Cobbosseecontee Road in Monmouth

Motorists who utilize Cobbosseecontee Road in Monmouth need to be aware of an upcoming lane closure starting Thursday, February 17 at the Jock Stream Bridge over Jock Stream.

Flaggers will regulate alternating one-way traffic at the bridge as crews begin preliminary construction on the bridge replacement. Alternating one-way traffic will continue until approximately April 10th when the road will close in order to replace the bridge. The road is expected to remain closed until the construction is complete in late August.

Crews will replace the current deteriorating structure with a precast concrete bridge. Atlantic Mechanical, Inc., of Woolwich, Maine is the contractor for the $800,000 project.
