Every 10 to 15 years the carriage roads in Acadia National Park must be resurfaced as a result of the rain and use by Park patrons. This year, the National Park Service with Harold MacQuinn out of Ellsworth will be resurfacing 13 miles of the 45 mile carriage road system.

Because of the work, sections of the carriage roads will be closed on a rolling basis weekdays from 7AM to 5 PM beginning Tuesday June 20th and lasting through September. Works will be done in the vicinity of Jordan Pond, Wildwood Stables and Bubble Pond.

All carriage roads will be open on weekends and federal holidays. Park patrons should be aware of equipment and materials stored on the carriage roads and trucks traveling to and from the work sites.
