Van Buren Road Construction

Van Buren – Full road construction has started this week in Aroostook County on Route 1, just north of the Martin Road in Van Buren. The project extends just over one mile to the northwest. The roadway will be restricted to alternating one-way traffic with flaggers assisting motorists during the day. In the evening and overnight hours, this stretch of road will be opened back up to two-way traffic.

This reconstruction includes the replacement of the existing pavement, new drainage pipes, new ditches and guardrail improvements.

The work, expected to be completed by the end of October, is being performed by Soderberg Company, Inc. of Caribou.
