The Maine Department of Transportation said today that I-95 northbound from Island Falls to Oakfield will re-open to traffic 12 days ahead of schedule.

In June, the 6.5 mile stretch of I-95 northbound was closed to traffic as crews worked to reconstruct the interstate due to frost heaving. Crews also repaired and replaced existing guardrails and drainage structures as well as minor bridge work.
