Tanager Bridge reopens to traffic
The Tanager Bridge in Orono is now open to traffic, so you can travel on Shoreline Drive (County Road 15) without using a detour route.
Be alert as work continues
Construction activities for the new bridge and around the channel will continue through the fall, and there is another planned bridge closure in September.
We will keep disruptions to a minimum whenever possible, but please expect occasional delays and impacts when traveling through the construction area.
For your safety and the safety of our crews, exercise caution and slow down.
Anticipate channel closures this summer
The Tanager Lake Channel remains open for people boating. There will be three short-term closures scheduled, lasting up to four days each, to allow crews to work on the new bridge.
We will inform people of the closure ahead of time with email updates, the project website and signage at the channel.
