Carriage Road Closures
Expect Improvements and Closures on Eagle Lake Carriage Road in 2020
In 2020, the Eagle Lake Carriage Road will be rehabilitated to improve and stabilize the road surface and associated features. Recreationists should anticipate closures generally from one intersection to another from April 15 to Nov 15, weather and schedule permitting. Upon completion of this project, all 45 miles of historic carriage roads in Acadia National Park will have undergone this type of improvement to ensure the preservation of the resource and the experience for future generations.
The work to be performed includes, but is not limited to:
Rehabilitation of the existing carriage road surface and subgrade, 6+ miles.
Rehabilitation of existing drainage features including roadside ditches, stone-lined drainage channels, and select culverts.
Reconstruction of several sections of dry-laid stone masonry retaining walls.
Stabilization of stone slope protection walls between the carriage road and areas with steeper slopes.
