FALMOUTH — The new Route 26/100 Falmouth Railroad Bridge, which spans the Presumpscot River and the Pan Am Railroad tracks, will open to traffic this afternoon, according to the Maine Department of Transportation.
This new bridge is slightly downstream from an original structure, which was built in 1932. Construction on the new bridge started in July.
Crews will continue dismantling the old bridge through the winter and will complete incidental work by the summer of 2012, DOT said in a press release.
CPM Constructors of Freeport was awarded the bridge replacement contract for $10.5 million.
