Downtown Drainage and Pedestrian Improvement Project

Downtown Drainage and Pedestrian Improvement Project

CAMDEN – The Maine Department of Transportation and Town of Camden will be making sidewalk and drainage improvements to Elm Street (Route 1) in Camden. The project area begins at Union Street and extends north approximately one-quarter of a mile, just past Bay View Street.

MDOT's work will begin impacting traffic on October 26th. Construction operations will stop during the winter months and resume in the spring. The estimated final completion date on this project is June 11th, 2021.

MDOT plans to maintain two-way traffic during as much of the construction period as possible. The contract only allows a single-lane traffic pattern at the southern end of the project area. Because there will be underground drainage work, on-street parking will be limited during this work. We thank residents, business owners, and members of the traveling public in advance for their patience and understanding while we make these important safety improvements.

The contractor on this project is Ranger Construction of Fairfield. The contract amount is $869,930.
