Acadia to begin repairs to bridges



ACADIA NATIONAL PARK— The National Park Service will be performing maintenance and significant repairs to several motor road bridges here beginning in September. The work will involve waterproofing, improving drainage, and rehabilitating and/or reconstructing masonry and mortar joints of the bridges. The repair work will continue over the next year and is expected to be completed by the end of September 2015.

Work scheduled for this fall includes the Paradise Hill Bridge on the Park Loop Road over Duck Brook Road. This bridge is located between State Route 233 and Hulls Cove Visitor Center. It is over the section of Duck Brook Road that is currently closed to motor vehicles.

Work will occur from late August through mid-November. Traffic will be restricted to one lane only intermittently.

Work will also begin on the Day Mountain Bridge on Route 3 over the Park Loop Road. This bridge is located south of Blackwoods Campground where State Route 3 passes over Park Loop Road.

Work will occur early September through the end of October. Traffic will be restricted to one lane only intermittently for both State Route 3 and Park Loop Road.

The Route 233 underpass which carries the Park Loop Road over Route 233, Bar Harbor will be repaired. This bridge is located west of the park entrance road on State Route 233.

Work will occur the first week of September through mid-November. Traffic on State Route 233 and Park Loop Road will be restricted to one lane only intermittently.

Next year, work is scheduled to begin on the Fish House Road Bridge on the Park Loop Road over Fish House Road at Otter Cove.

This bridge is located on the Park Loop Road north of Fabbri Picnic Area. The Fish House Road passes beneath.

Work will occur from mid-April to mid-July. Traffic on the Park Loop Road will intermittently be restricted to one lane traffic and Fish House Road will be closed.

Also next year, the Sieur de Monts Bridge, State Route 3 over the Park Loop Road at Sieur de Monts, in Bar Harbor will be repaired. It is located just south of Jackson Laboratory on State Route 3. The Park Loop Road passes beneath.

Work will occur from early April through June 2015. Traffic on State Route 3 and Park Loop Road will be restricted to one lane only intermittently. While work is occurring underneath the bridge on the east side of the park loop road, car traffic will be allowed, but bus detours will be in place. More information on this closure will be forthcoming.

The Kebo Brook Bridge on the Park Loop Road over Kebo Brook, Bar Harbor, at the Gorge Path trailhead is also scheduled for work.

Work will occur from mid-July through September. Traffic on the Park Loop Road will be restricted to one lane traffic only intermittently.
