Construction continues on the Bar Harbor Route 3 corridor. Here's the work plan for the week ending June 23rd. There is good news, as construction will take an extended break for the 4th of July Holiday, ending on June 29th and not beginning again until July 9th!

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.
