GARDINER, Maine (WABI) - The Bridge Street Bridge in Gardiner will be closing at midnight Wednesday to begin demolition work.

Crews have already started working on the Route 201 bridge as part of a project to enhance Gardiner’s historic downtown.

A 2017 report indicated that the bridge was in fair to poor condition and structurally deficient.

According to the Maine Department of Transportation, crews will start sliding a new bridge deck into place in two weeks.

The deck will weigh more than 700 tons.

They expect the work to be done by the end of November.
