Project Summary

In 2021, the City of Orono will be making improvements to various roads throughout the city. These roads include East Navarre, West Navarre, Eileen Street, Elm Street, Park Lane, Casco Point Road, Casco Circle, and Fagerness Point Road. Weekly updates will be posted here once construction begins.

Prior to the Street Improvements Project, the city will also be replacing the existing forcemain on Park Lane and Elm Street. This work is scheduled to begin the week of April 26th and is anticipated to wrap up toward the end of May. During this time, residents of Park Lane and Elm Street may experience temporarily restricted access. Access to residences will be restored at the end of each work day, and one lane of traffic will remain open for the duration of the project. Residents are asked to please use caution when traveling through the area. If there are any questions or concerns regarding the Forcemain Improvements project, please contact Project Representative Luke Connor at (507) 995-0465.
