Washington County road work underway

WASHINGTON COUNTY — Motorists traveling from Jonesboro to Machias can expect delays while the Maine Department of Transportation does roadwork.

The road reconstruction project, designed to improve safety on Route 1 in the towns of Jonesboro, Whitneyville and Machias, was set to begin this week with an anticipated completion date of June 29, according to a department news release.

The work zone runs from a point just north of the Whitneyville Road and extends a little more than three miles north to a point just past the Whitneyville/Machias town line. Lane restrictions are expected to create minor delays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays.

The contractor for the project is Eurovia, formerly the Lane Construction Corp.
