Motorists can now travel along the entire length of Old County Road.

After 46 days of being closed due to a massive sinkhole, a section of Old County Road north of Route 17 reopened to vehicle traffic late in the day on April 2.

The road has yet to be paved but that is expected to be done later in the month. Guardrails also have not been erected but concrete barriers have been placed along the side of the road adjacent to the former limestone quarry. The guardrails are also expected to be erected later in the month.

The sinkhole developed on the evening of Feb. 15.

The Maine Department of Transportation began repair work March 15 and completed the job April 2. The estimated cost of the project was $250,000, paid for by the state.
