FALMOUTH — A new traffic pattern greets westbound motorists on the Falmouth turnpike spur this week, the Maine Turnpike Authority announced.
Traffic is restricted to a single lane in each direction at the Presumpscot River overpass as crews begin a two-year project to reconstruct the bridges. Motorists heading westbound, toward the Maine Turnpike from Interstate 295 and Route 1, will cross over to the eastbound side of the bridge while work is done on the westbound bridge.
The first phase of construction is expected to be done by late this year. The overpasses were constructed in 1954.
