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.
