Construction on Route 1A in Ellsworth 

Construction on Route 1A in Ellsworth is set to resume this Monday, April 19, as crews will be onsite removing portions of pavement along this seven-mile stretch of the roadway. Two-way travel will be maintained during this phase of construction, but there will be an increase in the number of construction vehicles on the road, and motorists can expect segments of gravel road. Construction on this project began last fall, and since then, crews have removed trees, improved drainage, and excavated sections of the project. Monday, April 19 also marks the beginning of National Work Zone Awareness Week. Motorists are asked to obey posted speed limits, be mindful of workers and drive with caution through any construction zone.
