The reconstruction work continues on busy Route 3 in Bar Harbor.  Here is what the Maine Department Of Transportation has scheduled for this week:

- Backing up shoulders and driveways from Sand Point Road to East Hillside Drive

- Placing new drainage from Hamor Lane to Crooked Road

- Excavating subgrade, placing new gravel, and fine grading from Hamor Lane to Crooked Road

- Public works will be installing new water services from Hamor Lane to Crooked Road

- Wet cast wall construction near the Hulls Cove School House

- Heavy rip rap will be placed in Hulls Cove along the shore side of the road

- Utility companies will be working from the Ferry Terminal to the Bluffs
All southbound traffic on Route 3 will ride through the project, so please be considerate of those that are working there and directing traffic. All northbound traffic continues to be diverted onto the Crooked Road detour.  Please drive slowly through this area as  residents and animals are not used to so much traffic on the Crooked Road.

The two and a half year, $17.9 million project, that spans from a point 0.57 miles west of Sand Point Road to the intersection of Route 3/Eden Street and Route 233 in Bar Harbor will be completed in the Spring of 2019.
