Traffic at a busy intersection in downtown Ellsworth will be directed by Ellsworth PD Tuesday as crews work to install new traffic lights. 


The light at the intersection of Main and Water St. at the bottom of the hill in Downtown Ellsworth will be getting a replacement tomorrow 10/18 from 8AM to 4PM.

The new light system will include a traffic detection system to make the light change according to the direction of traffic flow.

The city hopes the new light system will make morning commutes from Bucksport and Surry area are smoother with less time stopped. It will also help with high traffic times in the afternoon and summer months.
