Fore Street Closed to Local Traffic Only from Hancock to St. Lawrence Streets as Part of Storm Water Construction Project

PORTLAND, Maine -- Beginning on Monday, November 29, 2021, the City’s contractor, Gorham Sand and Gravel will be permitted to close Fore Street to local traffic only from Hancock Street to St. Lawrence Street for five weeks, during working hours, in order to allow the contractor to safely install new storm drains and sewer pipes in the narrowest section of the roadway.  


IMPORTANT INFO FOR MOTORISTS:  Once the road closure has been implemented, it will remain in place for approximately five weeks. Motorists are urged to use the specified detour route via India Street, Congress Street and Atlantic Street or to seek an alternate route to get around the work zone. Motorists will be able to access local businesses and residences between Hancock Street and Freedom Way during this period of time. No through access towards the Eastern Promenade will be allowed during working hours (7am-5pm) on a daily basis except for emergency vehicles. Fore Street in the Westbound direction towards the Old Port will remain closed and drivers should continue by-passing the work zone via St. Lawrence.
