Construction on Western Avenue in Augusta Increases

Augusta – Work is increasing on the heavily traveled half-mile section of Western Avenue in Augusta between Prescott Road at the Manchester town line and Edison Drive.

Motorists should expect delays and seek alternate routes if possible in the morning and afternoon commute times as crews complete drainage structures, signal work, water and sewer upgrades, utility work as well as roadway excavation and paving operations.

Travelers are advised to drive safely and obey reduced speed limits when driving through the work zone.

It is anticipated all work will be completed by the end of August.
