Sarah Long Bridge Delayed Again
The new Sarah Long Bridge, scheduled tom open this month, has been moved once again. December 1st is the new target date. Paving and curbing must be completed for the border bridge to open to the public. This is not the first delay. Originally, the bridge was set for an early September open. According to Seacoast Online, The delay results in a $1,000 penalty for Cianbro for every day the bridge remains unopened to vehicles beyond the original Sept. 1 opening date, according to Maine Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Ron Taylor. He said there are also per-day penalties for every day past the June 1, 2018, deadline of having the entire project complete.
