The project manager for a Gorham contractor said reconstruction of Fort Hill Road (Route 114) in Gorham could get underway in three weeks.

Perry Durgin of R.J. Grondin & Sons of Gorham said Monday that the Maine Department of Transportation faxed them a letter of intent to award the firm a $6.6 million contract to reconstruct the highway. Grondin was the low bidder.

The road will stay open during reconstruction, but traffic delays are expected. “Study maps and learn ways around (the construction),” Durgin said in advice to motorists.

Durgin said the reconstruction would have to be completed by Nov. 17, 2007. “It’s a major project,” Durgin said.

The project will reconstruct much of the highway between the University in Southern Maine in Gorham and Route 35 in Sebago Lake Village. Durgin said a section of the highway near Huston Road in addition to a mile stretch near the intersection in Sebago Lake Village were completed two years ago.
