Construction On Second Street Bridge Set To Resume

Construction on the Second Street Bridge in Hallowell is set to resume, Monday, March 8, 2010. Crews had halted construction during the winter months, but are ready to restart, and expect to have the project completed by mid-June.

During this construction phase, flaggers will be used to control one lane of alternating traffic, so motorists may experience some delays on Second Street during the morning and evening commutes.

Technical Construction, Inc. of Turner is the contractor for this $1 million bridge deck replacement project. The Second Street Bridge was built in 1935. The steel girder bridge is 65 feet long.
