YARMOUTH — Main Street under the Route 1 bridge will be closed due to ongoing bridge construction from 8 p.m. Friday, March 2, to 6 a.m. Monday, March 5. 

Starting March 2, there will also be a new height restriction of 11 feet under the bridge until construction is complete. 

During the closure, westbound vehicles on Main Street will be directed to Route 1 northbound to East Main Street, then North Road to East Elm Street. Those traveling eastbound should take Route 1 South to Portland Street.

Drivers will be able to access Route 1 – which will remain open in both directions – from Main Street. Alternate routes for pedestrians and bicyclists will also be identified.

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.
