Seal Cove road block

ACADIA NAT’L PARK — Park officials have announced the temporary closure of Seal Cove Road in the park.

The road will close to through-traffic on Saturday, July 25, in order to facilitate the replacement of a large culvert over Lurvey Brook. The closure will be in effect for about two weeks, with the opening planned for Aug. 6.

The gate on the east side in Southwest Harbor will be closed, and barricades will be placed on the western side of the repair.

Access to Seal Cove Road from the west in the town of Tremont will remain open. This will allow access to Seal Cove Pond and to other destinations on the Western Mountain Road during the repair.

Immediately following this work, a second culvert will be replaced just to the west over Heath Brook. Through-traffic will be allowed via detour on the Western Mountain Road while this repair is being completed. All construction is expected to be complete by the end of September.
