COVID-19 Precautions in Acadia
As the National Park Service monitors and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making.
Construction on Duck Brook Motor Road BridgeStarting May 16, the National Park Service will start work on the Duck Brook Motor Road Bridge. Traffic will be reduced to one lane, with traffic control lights posted at each end. Expect minor delays when traveling across the bridge.
Workers will be repointing stones, mainly on the western, exterior side of the bridge. This project will also reconstruct the interior safety walkways, lighting system and internal concrete structures including drainages. Work is expected to be finished later this summer.
The Duck Brook Motor Road Bridge is a triple arch concrete cast-in-place bridge with concrete cast in place spanning the deep Duck Brook ravine. The bridge, constructed in 1950-53, is hollow and faced with rough cut granite. The bridge is the last major bridge constructed in the park as part of the historic motor road.
Starting March 1 until further notice, the Jordan Cliffs Trail, Precipice Trail, Valley Cove Trail and a portion of the Orange & Black Path will close to protect peregrine falcons from human disturbance or harassment during an annual nesting period.
