paving alert

The Department of Public Works (DPW) expects to complete its Market Street Paving Project during April and May.  The project area extends from Congress St. to Milk St. on Market Street. Construction work will entail localized pavement repairs, curb and sidewalk improvements, adjustments to iron frames on manholes and catch basins, and, final paving.  Final paving is expected to take only one or two days to complete.

The DPW has hired Glidden Excavating & Paving, Inc. of Gorham, Maine to complete this project.  Glidden is scheduled to begin work on Market Street on April 16th.  They anticipate working on curb and sidewalk improvements from Congress Street to Federal Street during the week of April 16th to April 20th. They anticipate continuing work on curb and sidewalk improvements from Newbury Street to Middle Street from April 23rd to May 4th.  The work schedule and rate of progress may be affected by significant rainfall events.

Glidden will be posting temporary “No Parking” signs in their work zones to facilitate construction and traffic flow. These parking restrictions will apply to daytime work on Monday through Friday from 6 AM and 7 PM. Parking during overnight hours and weekends will not be restricted. Access to businesses on Market Street will be maintained throughout construction. Traffic flow will be maintained on Market Street to the maximum extent possible.

Individuals with questions about this project can contact the Public Works Department by phone at 207-874-8801, by seeking out the City staff inspector or Glidden’s supervisor on the construction site, or by e-mailing to the following City staff e-mail addresses:,, or
