Railroad Repairs at a Second Location in New Gloucester

New Gloucester – On Monday, August 26th, crews will be conducting railroad crossing safety repairs on Route 231 near the intersection of Woodman Road beginning at 7 a.m. Repairs will be completed by early evening on Tuesday, August 27th.

These repairs will result in a road closure to all traffic at this location. It is anticipated one lane will be open for motorists by mid-day on Tuesday, with a completion scheduled for early evening.

Signs and message boards will guide motorists along the detour route which includes Depot Hill Road to Route 115 into Gray Center, then to Route 100.

This work, performed by Pan Am Railways, will include replacing a section of rail prior to repaving the area.

This project is in addition to railroad repairs scheduled for the Morse Road in New Gloucester.
