During the winter and spring, some of Maine’s roads weaken and they need to be protected. As temperatures warm and the ground thaws, soil under the pavement becomes saturated with water, making the pavement unstable. As a result, many roads cannot support heavy loads. To protect roads from serious damage, some roads are posted in order to limit the amount of weight travelling over them. State roads are posted by MaineDOT, and other roads are posted by municipalities, or counties.

In the City of South Portland, the roads being posted are the following:

  • Broadway from Westbrook St. to Main St
  • Fickett St.
  • Stillman St

The roads will be posted on Monday March 13th and will continue until it is determined that the frost is no longer present and the temperature is consistently above freezing.

Any vehicle or combination of vehicles registered for a gross weight of over 23,000 pounds is restricted from traveling on these roads without an exemption from the Public Works Department.

Passenger cars, pickup trucks, emergency vehicles, school busses, and fuel delivery trucks are exempt from the road posting.
