Here is what's going on this week where the black top ends!

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

The contractor will be working in the areas stated below for the week:

- Backing up shoulders and driveways from Sand Point Road to Lookout Point Road N.

- Placing new drainage from Hamor Lane to Crooked Road.

- Excavating subgrade, placing new gravel, and fine grading from Lookout Point Road N 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.

- Utilities will be working in the Bluffs.

Emera Maine is working around West Street and the Eagle Lake Road, and that company reminds you to please pay attention to the signage and flaggers.

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.
