Utility Work in Brighton Avenue Set to begin on Monday, May 17th 

PORTLAND, Maine -- Beginning Monday, May 17, 2021, The City’s contractor, DDI Construction, will begin work in Brighton Avenue between Rand Road and Capisic Street as part of the Brighton Avenue Sewer Separation Project.  Motorists should expect delays when driving through the work zone and are encouraged to seek alternate routes around the project area.  Please watch out for signage and drive slowly through the work zone.  Once work moves into Brighton Avenue, it is scheduled to last for the duration of the summer.  For more information about the project please visit the project website

IMPORTANT INFO FOR MOTORISTS:  Brighton Avenue will be reduced to one lane in either direction between the hours of 9am and 3:00pm to allow the contractor to complete the work.  The contractor will be required to maintain two lanes of traffic in the inbound direction during the morning commute (7am-9am) and two lanes of traffic in the outbound direction during the afternoon/evening commute (3:00pm to 6pm).  Access to local businesses and residential streets will be maintained during the project.
