Roadwork to Start on Mount Vernon Avenue, Augusta

Gary Whitton, Thinkstock

This winter was brutal on Maine roads. One of the most beaten up roads in the area is Mount Vernon Avenue in Augusta. Besides resurfacing the road, the project will also involve replacing and improving underground water and sewer pipes, crumbling sidewalks and retaining walls.

The state had planned to take on resurfacing Mount Vernon Avenue in the summer of 2015, however, city officials have concerns that the current pavement wouldn’t be able to last until then.

Look for a temporary layer of pavement to be poured on the worst section of the road, between the bridge over Bond Brook to the city ballfields. Work should start as soon as this Tuesday. This work should take a few weeks, then the state will tackle the extensive rebuilding of the road in the summer of 2015.

The Maine DOT will be hosting a public hearing this Tuesday to discuss the road project for Mount Vernon Avenue. The hearing will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the lecture hall at Augusta City Center.
