The Biddeford Connector will be closed between Route 111 and Morin Street from Wednesday, July 26 at 7 AM through Friday, August 11, 2023 for emergency culvert repair work. Morin Street will remain accessible throughout the project.
Detour signage will be placed along the route to direct drivers where to go, including specific signage for tractor trailer drivers. Drivers exiting the Maine Turnpike at Exit 32 who want to access Route 1 should turn left and follow detour signage to Edwards Avenue. To access the Maine Turnpike from Route 1, drivers will be directed to take Cole Road to Edwards Avenue and turn left onto Route 111.
There will be no access to Mountain Road from the Biddeford Connector during this project. Local traffic seeking to access Mountain Road should detour to New Road/Old Alfred Road. There will be a temporary traffic signal set up at the intersection of Alfred Street/New Road to assist with safe traffic flow.
We understand the inconvenience this closure will cause and we thank you in advance for your cooperation as crews work as quickly as they can to complete this critical repair. Details and updates about the project will be available via a 24/7 hotline at 207-571-0616 starting on Tuesday at noon. Questions about the project can be directed to the Biddeford Public Works Department at 207-282-1579.
