Paving expected to slow traffic on outer Congress Street on Friday

PORTLAND – An ongoing road paving project is expected to cause delays along outer Congress Street on Friday.

Paving work will continue Friday along Congress Street from the Westbrook city line to Blueberry Road from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., according to a news release from the city. 

As a result, traffic will be reduced to one way with alternating flow. Motorists may want to seek alternate routes to avoid traffic and delays.

The city asks that motorists watch out for bicyclists and pedestrians in the work zone.
