Cumberland Street In Westbrook Remains Closed

 

WESTBROOK, Maine – The Cumberland Mills Bridge in Westbrook will remain closed through the night and through tomorrow’s morning commute. A detour utilizing Bridge Street and Main Street is in effect.

Crews placed quick-setting concrete and rebar in the repaired area, but the concrete can not yet support vehicle traffic, so a decision was made to keep the bridge closed. A decision on when the bridge will open will be made after the concrete repairs are re-inspected tomorrow (Thursday) morning.

MaineDOT maintenance crews closed the Cumberland Mills Bridge in Westbrook last night in order to make repairs to a large pothole. The bridge carries Cumberland Street over the Presumpscot River in Westbrook.

In order to repair the 2’ x 3’ pothole, crews had to remove the deteriorated concrete surrounding the pothole, opening up a 7’ x 9’ area. Crews reinforced the area with steel rebar and filled it with quick-setting concrete.
