A four-mile scenic stretch of Route 1 in Lincolnville is being rebuilt using a p
A four-mile scenic stretch of Route 1 in Lincolnville is being rebuilt using a plan that honors aesthetics and history more than standard highway designs. Department of Transportation commissioner John Melrose believes the stretch could be a model of national significance. The plan allows the town to keep its narrow road and reduced speed limit in exchange for an official designation as a scenic roadway, and the unique architectural style of the original Ducktrap bridge, which had tall, sweeping arches, will be retained. The new bridge should be complete by May 1999, and the state hopes to lay about two miles of the new roadway by 2005.
