Repairs to Jonesport/Beals Island Bridge to Begin

Jonesport – The Jonesport-Beals Island Bridge will undergo repairs to its fender system following an incident on December 7th in which a marine vessel struck the bridge.

Crews will be repairing and retrofitting portions of the bridge’s fender system which helps to absorb impacts of this nature.

All work will be done during daylight hours beginning on Monday, December 19.

While there will be no impact to motorists, the channel will be restricted during the time work is performed.

It is anticipated all work will be completed within the first week of January, 2017.
