Between July 7-14, Maine DOT will finish work on Elm Street (placing manhole covers, frames, and driveway butt joints, as well as conduit installations). Maine Water will finish final work on Elm/Cutts Street in this timeframe as well.
During this phase of construction, projects will be in isolated areas. Alternating traffic and short detours will be used.
The final stage of paving will then start approximately Wednesday, July 15. It is expected to be completed in two days.
To alleviate the traffic problems that will occur on Main Street due to the Elm Street detours, Maine DOT will be working with the Saco PD to turn off the traffic lights at Pepperell Square (at the top of York Hill, near the railroad tracks). They will use officers (not flaggers) to direct traffic through the intersection more efficiently. There will also be an officer to direct traffic at the intersection of Adams and Lincoln.
