YARMOUTH — Main Street under Route 1 will be closed from the evening of Friday, Sept. 7, through the morning of Monday, Sept. 10, as overpass construction continues.
During this time, all vehicle, bike and pedestrian traffic will be prohibited.
According to a news release from the town, westbound drivers will be detoured to Route 1 northbound to East Main Street, then North Road to East Elm Street. Eastbound traffic will travel from Route 1 south to Portland Street.
Bicyclists and pedestrians may use School Street and through the Royal River Park to Bridge Street to connect with Main Street.
Drivers will be able to access Route 1, which will remain open throughout the weekend, from Main Street.
The work is part of a $4.1 million replacement of the 70-year-old bridge, funded by the Maine Department of Transportation, Portland Area Comprehensive Transit System, and the town.
