 Bangor, Maine: Beginning Monday, August 28, 2017, Park Street will be limited to one-way travel in the direction of downtown.  Access to Park Street will be from Center Street only; Park Street will not be accessible from Exchange or State Streets.  Click here to view a map showing the detour route.  


The partial closure of Park Street is necessary to perform repairs to the Park Street hill retaining wall located behind City Hall.  The team of Sargent Corporation, CES and Geostabilization International will be performing the repairs, which are likely to take about twelve weeks.  Motorists are urged to drive safely within the work zone and observe all signage.  

Businesses along Park Street will remain open throughout the project.  On street parking will continue to be available along Park Street.

Access to Bangor City Hall by the handicapped entrance will remain available throughout the project. Handicapped and mobility challenged parking will be available in the upper lot immediately adjacent to city hall.   Click here to view a map showing parking options at Bangor City Hall.
