FARMINGDALE, Maine (AP) - Traffic will be periodically stopped on part of Interstate 95 over the next few nights so Central Maine Power can install new transmission lines across the highway in Farmingdale.

The utility says the work will take place between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. starting Monday and continuing through Thursday. The project will affect traffic near mile 105 in both directions.

Traffic will be stopped for 20-minute intervals. Message boards will alert approaching drivers, and state troopers will be on site.

The work is part of the utility’s Maine Power Reliability Program, which includes the construction of five new substations.
