April 9, 2021 - UPDATE - Contractor has marked out the area and sawcut the existing pavement for removal. Typical traffic control and lane closures will be in place when necessary. Tree removal completed at Crawford Drive/Oak Grove Avenue intersection, increasing drivers' sight distance and making it safer for pedestrians to cross Oak Grove Avenue.
The City of Bath applied for a grant from the Maine Department of Transportation in 2013 for funds to construct sidewalks on Oak Grove Avenue, Judkins Avenue, and Old Brunswick Road. After a long design and review period, the project is finally coming to construction. The work is expected to begin in early April 2021. The project includes storm drain and sewer improvements, new sidewalks and crosswalks and a reconfiguration of the parking lot at the corner of Old Brunswick Road and Oak Grove Avenue. The construction has been awarded to Pratt & Sons, a contractor from Mechanic Falls, Maine. The City will be represented on the site by Gorrill Palmer Engineers, who also designed all of the improvements. The work is expected to take approximately 3-5 months.
The public and nearby residents should expect occasional impacts to traffic flow, as well as dust and noise from the work.
For questions or comments during construction, the fastest way to get answers is to contact the City’s field representative:
