MDOT plans Danforth bridge work

DANFORTH, Maine — The Maine Department of Transportation will replace culverts under the Crooked Brook Bridge starting July 6.

The bridge carries Route 1 traffic over Crooked Brook and is located just north of the Brookton Township/Danforth line. The estimated cost of the project is $359,484, according to the Maine DOT.

“Crews will replace culverts with a precast concrete box in order to bring the water crossing up to current standards,” said Paul Merrill, the department’s public information officer.  

During construction, crews will close one lane of traffic and use traffic lights to control a single-lane traffic pattern. The contractor on this project is LIMC out of Kennebunk.

Work is scheduled to end Aug. 19.
