DNR Staff will be completing two bridge construction projects in Mattamiscontis over the next two weeks.
Construction will begin Tuesday, September 13th. The plan is to begin on the Mattamiscontis Stream bridge (Outlet of Big Mattamiscontis Lake) and then start on the Mountain Brook Bridge the following week.
The loop road will allow access to either side of the bridge sites so travel in the territory will not be restricted by the construction, aside from having to take the longer way to Mattamiscontis Mountain or the Little Mattamiscontis Lake area.
Any questions please call either:
Dan McCaw, Fisheries Manager at (207) 817-7377
Or Chuck Loring, Forest Manager at (207) 817-7339.

Maine will experience an unusually hot and humid period of weather over the next few days, with the National Weather Service issuing a Heat Advisory across most of the state.

Check in twice a day on older persons and people who cannot care for themselves
Look for signs of heat illness, especially heat exhaustion and heat stroke
Make sure they have access to air conditioning
Encourage them to drink more fluids
Talk with their health care provider about appropriate fluid intake if they take medications
Never leave anyone, especially children, pets, or those with special needs, in a parked car – even briefly – as temperatures can become dangerous within a few minutes.
