BATH, Maine — Traffic patterns on Commercial and Vine streets will be altered through Tuesday as reconstruction of the Bath viaduct gets underway.
Westbound traffic on Vine Street/Leeman Highway is reduced to a single lane through 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to a news release from the Maine Department of Transportation.
Eastbound traffic on Commercial Street/Leeman Highway will be prohibited from continuing beyond Washington Street or King Street but will still be able to access the Sagadahoc Bridge and Route 1 headed east and north.
The closures were scheduled during “low-volume days and periods” to affect as few motorists as possible, according to the release.
