FREEPORT — The closure of Flying Point Road is not expected to last as long as originally thought, according to town officials.

The town is working with a contractor to reopen the road in the near future. The reopening date has not yet been determined.

Emergency services in both Freeport and Brunswick will respond to police, fire and rescue calls in the areas affected by the closure. A Freeport fire engine stationed at 75 Flying Point Road will also be available when fire department members living on that side of town are available.

Both lanes of Flying Point Road were closed Monday night after the Kelsey Brook culvert collapsed around a construction area.

The road connects the downtown and Bow Street with the Flying Point neighborhood, Wolfe’s Neck Farm and Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park. The detour during the two-lane closure consists of Pleasant Hill, Highland and Bunganuc roads.
