Work has officially resumed on the much traveled route, and here is what the crews are up to according to the Maine Department of Transportation.

To begin with, the area from Old Bar Harbor Road to Sand Point Road that had been temporarily opened to two-way traffic will now be converted back to one way traffic due to paving and other work being done in the area.

Meanwhile, crews will be working on this projects:

- Placing new drainage from Barton's Lane to Hamor Lane,

- Excavating subgrade and placing new gravel from Sand Point Road to Barton's Lane.

- The utility companies will be conducting working from the Bluffs to Prospect Street and Barton's Lane to the Crooked Road.

Northbound traffic will continue to be detoured between Crooked Road and Sand Point Road onto the Crooked Road. As usual, those traveling south will be reduced to one lane.  You are asked to please drive slowly within the detour!

The $17.9 million project will continue until the Spring of 2019.
