Casco Bay Lines (CBL) would like to inform those that travel to and from Chebeague Island that the Maine Department of Transportation is set to begin the fender system replacement work.
The Contractor, Wyman & Simpson, along with their sub-contractor, Maine Coast Marine, will mobilize a crane, small material barge and work boat to the State Pier in Chandler’s Cove on Monday, February 19th. They have coordinated their work and the placement of their equipment such that the ferry will be able to make all scheduled trips to and from the island.
It is anticipated the work will take three to four weeks to complete. This schedule is weather dependent, as well as constrained by the need for good low tide work windows. The work will be done in stages and approximately half of the pier face will not be available while the work progresses. The contractor will use barricades to block off those areas where work is taking place and we ask that you avoid entering into the work area for your safety as well as the safety of the contractors.
CBL will continue working closely with MaineDOT and the contractor to minimize any impacts on our service. Should any issues arise during the course of the construction work, please do not hesitate to reach out to the DOT resident, Ed Karpinski at 207-504-1916. Should information change or issues arise that affect the schedule, CBL will post it on our website as well as send out additional e-mail notices. Should you have any questions about the work, please feel free to contact either Nick Mavodones or Paul Pottle at 207-774-7871. We thank you for your patience and understanding during the necessary rehabilitation work.
