Dear Resident:

I am writing to inform you about an upcoming road project on:

If you have any items in the Town’s Right-of-Way or concerns about the potential roadwork that you would like addressed. Please contact me, at the Town Office, so I can meet with you and discuss your concerns.
 
I want to reassure you that the Town staff and I are working with the contractors to make this transition as safe and as convenient as possible. During the construction process, the road will be closed to thru traffic; however, will be open for local traffic (residents, emergency vehicles, post office and school buses) you might experience temporary road closures and delays, be prepared to stop and obey all flaggers and signs for your safety and the contractors. Also, the Town has coordinated with all emergency response agencies that serve Wayne, and they are aware of the construction. Wayne Fire Department, Winthrop Ambulance, Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, Maine State Police, School District and the Post Office have been made aware of the road construction and they all are prepared for the delays.
 
Please bear with us, while we work toward improving the Town roads. This will only be temporary and in the end, the Town will have smooth and safe road to travel. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
 
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (207) 685-4983 or townmanager@waynemaine.org.
 
 
Sincerely,  
Aaron Chrostowsky
