Railroad reconstruction to cause road closure in Wallagrass

WALLAGRASS, Maine — The Maine Department of Transportation will be reconstructing the Soldier Pond railroad crossing Sept. 15 and 16. As a result, the entry of Soldier Pond Road from Aroostook Road will be closed. 

The project is scheduled to begin Sept. 15 and is set to last two days and nights.

The town of Wallagrass posted an announcement on its Facebook Page to inform residents about the closure. 

“Enter Soldier Pond by Strip Road only,” the post said. “You will only be able to access the Town Office by Strip Road. Please allow extra time for your commute.” 

For more information, contact the Wallagrass Town Office at 207-834-2263.
