Roadwork on Schoodic Peninsula

On July 9, Acadia National Park will begin work to replace approximately 4,500 linear feet of water line on the Schoodic Peninsula, Town of Winter Harbor, Maine. The water line was installed in the 1960s and runs from the well on the slopes of Schoodic Head to the former navy base. Deterioration of the existing line has led to numerous breakages and leaks, making it necessary to completely replace it.

Work will require closing the unpaved road to the summit of Schoodic Head for several weeks. The paved loop road, the road to Schoodic Point, restrooms at Frazer Creek and Schoodic Point, and the facilities at the Schoodic Education and Research Center will all remain open.

For more information on this roadwork, call Jim Vekasi at 207-288-8750.

Acadia National Park contains more than 120 miles of historic hiking trails. Many of these trails were established by local village improvement societies in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today many of the historic features, such as stonework, are still visible.
