Hallowell and central Mainers that go through Hallowell, it has been a long summer of the detour.

However, according the the Maine DOT website, that will come to an end FRIDAY!

The barriers are coming down, the road is being striped and two way traffic shall resume.

The WORK is NOT done.  There is still more to do this fall and next spring.

But this is a happy step in the right direction.
