AUGUSTA, Maine — The northbound lanes of Interstate 295 between Topsham and Gardiner will close Tuesday for a repaving project that’s expected to continue through most of the summer.

The Maine Department of Transportation said northbound traffic will be diverted onto the southbound lanes, which were repaved last summer. Southbound motorists can travel on the Maine Turnpike or U.S. 201.

The closure is expected to last until the end of August.

The $34 million project is funded by economic stimulus money and is expected to create more than 800 jobs.
