Be forewarned, the I-395 ramps that travel beneath the Wilson Street Bridge construction in Brewer will be closed both tonight and Tuesday night.

The Maine Department of Transportation tells us that crews will be out during the overnight tonight and Tuesday night replacing structural steel, which will require certain ramp closures.

The I-395 ramps that travel under the bridge will be closed to traffic from 9:00 p.m. on Monday, April 12th to 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 13th and then again from 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13th to 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 14th.

There will be detour signs directing you how to get onto I-395 westbound via Route 1A that you can follow, or you can attempt to read this from a MDOT press release.

Traffic that normally uses the ramp from Wilson Street/Route 1A westbound to I-395 westbound will be detoured west along Wilson Street, go left to Parkway South, and then go right to the I-395 westbound on-ramp. Traffic that normally uses the ramp from I-395 eastbound to Wilson Street/Route 1A westbound will be detoured from I-395 to Exit 5, go right on Parkway South, and then go right to Wilson Street.

Got that?  Good.

The replacement of the Wilson Street Bridge in Brewer is the first step in constructing the controversial I-395/Route 9 connector.  The majority of that work is due to begin this September, and will erase quite a bit of big truck traffic that would normally travel to Holden via Route 1A and then take Route 46 to Route 9.

The General Stores Of Downeast Maine

These are the long-time general stores that are spread throughout downeast Maine. The stores that your grandparents picked up milk, beer, and that night's dinner at. For years they had been filled with things like fly paper, clothes, beef jerky, and that morning's newspaper. Now, you stop by for that slice of breakfast pizza, a tasty fried chicken sandwich for lunch, gas,and a handful of lottery tickets.


They're an important part of Maine's heritage, and their numbers are starting to dwindle. But we still frequent them to pick up the day's necessities and to keep up on town gossip.


They may not be owned by the original owners, and they may not look the same as they did years and years ago. But that same hometown feeling is there, the minute you set foot on their wooden floors. More than likely the same wooden floors that your grandparents set foot on.
