Traffic Sensors to be Installed in Skowhegan

Skowhegan – MaineDOT crews will be installing traffic classifying sensors in the pavement on US Route 201 (Waterville Road) in Skowhegan starting on Tuesday, October 16th. This two day event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Flaggers will assist with alternating one-way traffic for a quarter mile beginning approximately two miles north of the Varney Road and two tenths of a mile south of Carrier Lane.

Because this work is weather dependent, the rain date is set for Thursday, October 18.

The project supports our Traffic Monitoring Program, providing the number of vehicles utilizing the highway throughout the year as well as changes in travel patterns.
