Route 77 in South Portland to Close Overnights for Water Main Work

South Portland – The Portland Water District will be completing preliminary work on the Route 77 water main in South Portland this week that will necessitate the road being closed in the overnight hours.

Tonight (Wed 9/7) and tomorrow (Thu 9/8) overnight between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., the road will be closed at the intersection of Broadway and Ocean Street (Route 77) and extend 0.1 of a mile southerly. Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route.

It is anticipated the entire project will be completed by October 2nd.

Once the Portland Water District project has been completed, MaineDOT crews will be back to that area to finish paving and striping. That completion date is anticipated to be October 15th.

Because this work is weather dependent, the dates are subject to change.
