SEDGWICK, Maine — Motorists traveling to and from the Deer Isle-Stonington area should expect delays Friday morning, according to the Maine State Police.

Police expect travel delays on Route 15 in Sedgwick on Friday morning while two tractor-trailer trucks carrying large concrete beams are turned around.

The concrete beams are each more than 100 feet long and are the type used in bridge construction, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The trucks, which mistakenly were sent to the area with their loads, are located near the Deer Isle-Sedgwick Bridge. Beginning at about 9 a.m., the drivers will need to back up the rigs about one mile in order to turn them around, McCausland said Thursday.

The process is likely to stop traffic for about an hour, he said.

Once the trucks are turned around and on their way, few delays are expected, McCausland said. Their final destination is South Thomaston.
