Route 105 reduced to one lane for bridge repairs

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 7, a section of Route 105 in Camden will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic so Maine Department of Transportation bridge maintenance crews can repair the curbing on a small bridge that spans Bog Stream. Traffic will be directed by signs at either end of the bridge. The bridge repairs are expected to take between four and six weeks to complete.
