Repairs on Park Loop Road
Contact: Jim Vekasi, 207-288-8750
Acadia National Park, in cooperation with the State of Maine Department of Transportation, has contracted with Lane Construction to shim and overlay 11.5 miles of Park Loop Road, beginning on the one way section near Otter Cliffs and extending along the two way section past Jordan Pond, ending near the Route 233 entrance.
Work started on May 16 and is scheduled to be completed by June 15. Crews will work from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. No work will take place on Memorial Day weekend from noon on Friday, May 25, through 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 29.
Work areas will be signed, coned, and marked with a flashing arrow board. One lane will remain open and vehicles will be directed around work sites by flaggers. Because of the time of year and level of traffic, the park doesn’t anticipate long delays.
Call park headquarters at 207-288-3338 or go to our website at www.nps.gov/acad for all the latest information on openings and closings in Acadia.
