Portland Paving Projects

Portland – Paving projects will take place around Portland beginning on May 15th and ending by mid-September. Each location will feature a "shim" coat of paving and may include additional efforts such as curb work and adjustment of sewers.

The following locations are scheduled for paving:

  • Veranda Street at the intersection of Washington Avenue will be paved, extending to the intersection of the on-ramps to I-295.

  • Eastern Promenade paving starts at Atlantic Street and extends to Washington Avenue.

  • International Parkway (airport access road) starts at the intersection of Congress Street and extends to the beginning of the round-about. It also includes a small portion of the Jetport Parkway.

  • Lambert Street paving starts at the intersection of Auburn Street extending to just past the intersection of Washington Avenue Extension.

  • Baxter Boulevard paving will take place on the part of the Boulevard that is currently closed off.

Motorists at each location will encounter alternating one-way traffic with flaggers present. Slight delays are expected.

These paving projects, performed by Glidden Excavation & Paving of Gorham, are necessary to preserve the roads and provide a smoother ride for the traveler.
