If you are in the capital area and thinking about taking a drive down to the Mid-coast for maybe some of that coastal flavor you’ve been craving all year.

Or if you are already in the Mid-coast, and ready to do some serious holiday shopping in the big city of Augusta, you will want to know about the detour on Route 32 that shut down a portion of this very popular road down for an extended period of time has now been re-opened.

The Wagner Bridge Project on Rt 32 in Waldoboro was detoured for the past few months due to softer soil than anticipated by the contractor Hagar Enterprises. The delay ended up causing a whole redesign of the project and re-engineering to change the scope of the project as additional shoring and excavation had to be done.

Many people had to find alternate routes to by pass the area. Although now the road is completely open, there are still some minor updates to be done including adding guardrails, but the road is now passable without having to detour.

Pass this important traffic update to those you know prefer that route to the alternate detour routes.
