DOT to close Route 116 to fix damaged bridge

MEDWAY – Route 116 will be closed to all traffic for a few hours this morning while Maine Department of Transportation crews shore up a damaged bridge.

The closure will be at the I-95 overpasses, a short distance south of the intersection of Routes 116 and 11 in Medway, but the closure will affect traffic on Route 116 between Medway and Chester. Both ends of the road will remain open to local traffic.

The damage to the bridge was caused when an over-height load struck the bridge, damaging two of the six steel stringers that support the bridge.
