As we're all very much aware, work continues within the Bar Harbor/MDI reconstruction project on busy Route 3.  Here is what the Maine Department Of Transportation has scheduled for this week:

- Backing up shoulders and driveways from Old Bar Harbor Road to Sand Point Road

- Placing new drainage from Lookout Point Road N to Hamor Lane

- Excavating subgrade and placing new gravel from Lookout Point Road N to Hamor Lane as well as fine grading from Sand Point Road to Lookout Point Road N

- Public works will be installing new water services from Lookout Point Road N to Hamor Lane

- Utilities will be working from the Bluff's to Breakneck Road and along Ocean Avenue

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.
