Thomaston Route 1 Project to Resume After Labor Day
Thomaston - Beginning Tuesday, September 6, crews will be back working from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the Route 1 reconstruction in Thomaston. There will be one lane of alternating traffic assisted by flaggers.
All businesses will be accessible.
This work is part of an $8.4 million road reconstruction project that will result in not only a smoother, safer Route 1 but also:
New sidewalks on both sides through the town
Sidewalk bump-outs to calm traffic
New storm drains
Slip lane at the intersection of Oyster River Road to minimize delays
“No Right on Red” traffic signals at the intersection of Beechwood and Knox to simplify the intersection to improve safety
New parking configuration on Main Street to improve safety and mobility
Construction is weather-dependent, so schedules are subject to change.
It is anticipated all work will be completed in November of 2017.
