Work continues on the Route 3 Corridor in Bar Harbor. Here's the work plan for the week ending May 26th. Contractors will be off the road for Memorial Day Weekend after Thursday, May 24th and will resume construction efforts on Tuesday, May 29th.

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.
