Kenduskeag Bridge To Close Next Week

MaineDOT announced today that crews are set to begin construction next week on the replacement of the Village Bridge in Kenduskeag. The Village Bridge carries the Stetson Road over Kenduskeag Stream to the intersection of Route 15 in Kenduskeag.

On Tuesday, June 7, construction crews will close the bridge and detour traffic onto the Mudgett Road and Higginsville Road. Truck traffic will be directed to the Morey Road. If construction proceeds as planned, the new bridge will reopen by mid-November.

Crews will be removing the existing steel truss bridge, and replacing it with a steel and concrete structure that will have a sidewalk and a paved surface.

T Buck Construction, Inc of Auburn is the contractor for the $1.6 million project.

The Village Bridge is 110’ long and was built in 1932.
