ROAD CLOSED: Route 1 in Cyr Plantation Washed Out
CYR PLANTATION, Maine (WAGM) -
Maine DOT has closed a section of Route 1 in Cyr Plantation until further notice. A section of the road has completely washed out. According to a resident on the scene, heavy rains caused a beaver dam upstream to let go, causing massive flooding along a stream which crosses Route 1 and sits between Abel Cyr Road and Vaillancourt Hill Rd.
Maine DOT has said those trying to access Van Buren via Route 1 need to seek an alternative route via Route 1A or Route 161.
WAGM will have more information as it becomes available.
