Rumble strips are coming to Rockport

Jun 13, 2018

Rockport — The Maine Department of Transportation will be installing rumble strips in Rockport later this summer. Rumble strips are designed to aid in drivers’ safety, alerting them of crossing or nearing the center line in periods of distraction, fatigue or reduced visibility due to weather. Installation will take place at the following locations:

From Rockport to Warren, Route 90 — from the island west of Route 1 to the 35 mph sign, south of Route 17.

From Rockland to Hope, Route 17 — from the 50 mph sign north of Old County Road, to the 35 mph sign south of Route 90 and from the 45 mph sign north of Mt. Pleasant Avenue, to the 40 mph sign south of Pushaw Road.

These two locations were chosen because they are considered high commuter and commerce routes, where the average annual daily traffic totals exceed 6,000 cars per day and where speed limits are generally over 45 mph.

Questions or concerns can be directed to Assistant Program Manager Stephen E Bodge II at 441-6850.
