NEWPORT, Maine — Paving work on Interstate 95 will slow traffic over a 13-mile stretch, according to Maine Department of Transportation officials.

The paving work will cover a stretch from Newport to Carmel in the highway’s northbound lanes, according to MDOT spokesman Ted Talbot.

Work is expected to start by the end of this week, Talbot said.

Drivers should allow extra time to reach destinations with reduced speeds, one lane of travel, uneven lanes and grooved pavement, Talbot said. Ramp closures will also occur between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Work includes pavement milling, hot mix overlay and drainage improvements. Work is expected to finish by November.
