Patience required when driving through construction zones in downtown Bangor

By Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Road construction and underground infrastructure projects continue to dominate the downtown Bangor landscape this summer.

The majority of projects are on schedule and on budget, according to Bangor Public Works Director Dana Wardwell. Several of the largest efforts, including the upgrades along a more than half-mile stretch of Main Street and the revitalization of West Market Square, are expected to wrap up before snow flies.

On Thursday, Wardwell said construction crews likely will take Labor Day weekend off from working. Concerts are scheduled at the Waterfront Pavilion on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Other projects in the downtown area include efforts to replace aging sewer and stormwater infrastructure.

Crews should complete West Market Square by mid- to late September, according to Wardwell.
