Portion of Route 43 in Farmington to temporarily close

Motorists who utilize Route 43 west of the Town Farm Road in Farmington need to be aware of an upcoming road closure on Route 43.

Starting Wednesday, June 23 and continuing until July 2, a section of Route 43 between the Morrison Hill Road and Marvel Street in Farmington will be closed so MaineDOT crews can strengthen an unstable slope area that is causing a portion of that road to sag. Crews will first stabilize the slope, then rebuild the sagging road portion, and repave the repaired section.

Motorists traveling on that section of Route 43 will be detoured to Marvel Street until the repairs are complete.
