Another week, and another step closer to getting Route 3 back to normal.

The two-year reconstruction project that's due for completion in the spring of 2019 continues, and here's what the MDOT and contractors will be focusing on for the next couple of weeks:

  • Working on shaping and loaming in-slopes from Duck Brook to the Acadia National Park entrance
  • Placing new pavement from the Acadia National Park entrance into the Bluffs
  • Grade and pave driveways from West Street to Eagle Lake Road and from the Acadia National Park entrance to Duck Brook
  • Paving surface from West Street to Duck Brook
  • Shape and loam shoulders from the Acadia National Park entrance to the Bluffs
  • Surface paving from West Street to Duck Brook
  • Finegrade and pave sidewalks from West Street to Duck Brook
  • Install guardrail from Crooked Road to the Bluffs

Remember, the one-way detour that utilizes the Park Loop Road within Acadia National Park is still operational for those traveling out of Bar Harbor.  Please drive SLOWLY while obeying the speed limit and any signage.
