ELLSWORTH — Major construction projects are well under way this summer, including a Hampton Inn and a Goodwill store.
Construction on a new NAPA auto parts store also is expected to break ground soon next to Advanced Auto Parts on Route 1.
The Goodwill store under construction in the former Dave Gould Ford auto dealership is projected to open in September.
The three-story, 86-room Hampton Inn is being built on the site of the former Maine Department of Transportation garage. It is situated behind Walgreens.
