AUGUSTA, Maine — Installation of transmission structures along Interstate 295 next week will require closing of one lane of the highway near Topsham.

CMP spokeswoman Gail Rice said the left lane will be closed along I-295 northbound near Mile 34 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 22-26.

The new transmission structures will be installed in the median of the roadway.

The purpose of the project is to enhance system reliability and will provide greater clearance between treetops and power lines.
