SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — A paving project on Broadway between Lincoln Street and Route 1 (Cash Corner) in South Portland will necessitate a detour around this area beginning on Monday, Aug. 26, according to the Maine Department of Transportation.
Weather permitting, normal traffic patterns should return by Sept. 7.
Westbound traffic (outbound) on Broadway will be detoured onto Lincoln Street to Main Street to Cash Corner. Eastbound traffic on Broadway will not be affected.
South Portland Bus Service Maine Mall Route 24B will follow the detour route.
This detour will be in place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday with possible Saturdays.
The entire project, performed by Shaw Brothers of Gorham, begins at the intersection of Broadway and Westbrook Street, extending northerly for 1.54 miles to one-tenth of a mile before the intersection of Broadway and Lincoln Street in South Portland.
This $641,000 project is expected to wrap up for the season during the first week of November.
