Fort Fairfield Public Works crews will be replacing a culvert which has failed near the entrance to F.A.R.M. Park on West Limestone Road on June 6-7, 2017.

Fort Fairfield Public Works did put out a statement concerning residence access during the time of the construction project, providing the weather cooperates.

Public Works Director, Darren Hanson explains, "We are mindful of the need for residents who live on West Limestone Road, and  farmers who have fields in the area, to be able to access their homes, barns and fields." Hanson added, "but the old pipe under the road has separated, so we will need to excavate the entire section of road to dig out the old pipe and replace it with a new culvert and an overflow pipe. The new infrastructure will be able to handle the water flows in this area much better and help preserve the road moving forward."

Hanson stated that it would take 2 days to complete resulting in a short detour and a minor inconvenience to the public.

Should you need to access that part of the road, you will be rerouted across Flannery Road to Center Limestone Road, a detour of about 2-miles.

Please give yourself plenty of time to get to work and appointments during the time of the construction.
