The City of Bath applied for a grant from the Maine Department of Transportation in 2011 for funds to construct a sidewalk on the east side of Commercial Street between the Sagadahoc Bridge and Broad Street. After a long design and review period, the project is finally coming to construction. The work is expected to begin in October 2021. The project includes a storm drain, new sidewalk and crosswalks, a retaining wall, and lighting. The construction has been awarded to J. Pratt Construction, a contractor from Minot, Maine. The City will be represented on the site by Ransom Consulting, who also designed all of the improvements. The work is expected to take approximately 2-3 months.
There will be disruptions to access to the Guilford lot, travel and parking in the work area on Commercial and Lambard Streets, and to access to the Bath Freight Shed while this work is underway.
