Midtown Greenway

Bridge replacement

A new bridge will replace Tanager Bridge (formal name Shoreline Drive Bridge) over Tanager Lake, in Orono.

Project status

Nearing completion

Much of the main structures for the new bridge are complete. We still need to pour concrete for approaches and railings. And the concrete needs to cure to reach its full strength.


Shoreline Drive remains open but expect some ongoing delays.

This will affect drivers on Shoreline Drive and those ]using the channel under the bridge.

The bridge remains load restricted. Law enforcement is enforcing this.

Stay aware, use extra caution and slow down when driving through the construction area.

Project timeline

Construction began in March 2021. Project completion is scheduled for later in 2021.

Tanager Bridge project timeline showing planning and design are complete with construction and project completion scheduled for 2021.
