Press Release

New Payne Road in Scarborough opens Monday

SCARBOROUGH, Maine —  The Dunstan’s Corner construction project in Scarborough moves closer to completion on Monday, June 17, with the opening of the new Payne Road, according to a Maine Department of Transportation press release.

This $2.8 million project is located at the intersection of Route 1 with Payne, Broadturn and Pine Point roads. Work being performed includes pavement overlay on Route 1, Pine Point Road and Broadturn Road.

Payne Road has been reconstructed and relocated northerly of the existing intersection of Route 1. Work has included excavation, a new “sub-base” of the roadway, paving, drainage and curb improvements, traffic signal upgrades as well as water main replacements and other safety improvements.

While the Payne Road will be open and accessible, it is recommended motorists use Route 1 and Haigis Parkway, as these improvements and the ones recently accomplished at the Route 1/Haigis Parkway intersection have been designed to make it easier and more efficient, rather than the more rural section of the Payne Road.

Work continues in and around Dunstan’s Corner, so travelers are advised to continue using caution and allow for extra time when passing through this area.

It is anticipated all work will be completed by the end of July.
