Release Date:  01-01-2019

BANGOR, Maine — A utility pole replacement project involving work over Interstate 95 in Bangor will require brief traffic delays overnight beginning at 11 p.m. Wednesday and Sunday, January 2 and 6, with a weather back-up date of Monday, Jan. 7. Work will end by 5 a.m.

Contractors with Emera Maine are replacing aged utility poles off Sylvan Road, requiring work on power lines that cross I-95 between Hogan Road and Stillwater Avenue exits. Interstate travel lanes will be closed for several minutes at intervals throughout the nights of work to allow workers to safely complete the job. Motorists may want to consider alternate routes.

No interruption of service to area customers is expected.

Related work later in January may also require traffic delays. However, dates of work are subject to change due to rain, snow or wind. Follow @emerame on Twitter for updates.
