Road Reconstruction to Begin in Caribou

Caribou – Crews will be fully reconstructing a portion of Route 161 just north of the Caribou/Fairfield town line beginning on Monday, June 1st.

The project begins 0.81 of a mile north of the Caribou/Fairfield town line and extends northwesterly for 4.01 miles to the Aroostook River Bridge.

Traffic will be controlled by flaggers with restricted 11ft. lanes within the work zones. Motorists should expect slight delays while work is being performed Monday through Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The project includes excavation, placing gravel, paving, new drainage and guardrails as well as shoulder and ditch work.

Crews will finish the first phase in the fall, and return in the spring of 2016 to complete the second phase.

Soderberg Construction Company of Caribou will perform this $4.5 million project.
