The summer traffic will be at its peak this and next week. Construction continues on the Bar Harbor Route 3 corridor. Here's the work plan for the week ending August 11th.

The detour is in effect, and remember commercial vehicles should not be using the Park Loop Road detour! There have been instances when vehicles have been pulled over for not following the rules. It is so important to drive carefully and slowly on the detour route. Please follow the directions of the flaggers and try to move over to give the construction crews as much room as possible.
