BATH — The Maine Department of Transportation will be performing an inspection of the Sagadahoc Bridge next week - from May 15 to May 19. This bridge carries Route 1 over the Kennebec River between Bath and Woolwich.

The Federal Highway Administration requires this inspection be completed at least every two years. This is a scheduled inspection to meet that requirement.

This inspection work will impact traffic, according to MDOT, in a news release. There will be right lane and shoulder closures between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day to allow space for the equipment used to inspect under the bridge. Message Boards will be in place to provide notice for the traveling public.
