GARDINER — Drivers should expect daily lane closures starting Monday as the state begins repaving Route 201 in Gardiner and Richmond, officials said.

The area that will be repaved starts at the intersection with Route 197 in Richmond and extends northeast by 6 miles, according to a news release from the Maine Department of Transportation.

The agency said the project is expected to be finished by July 1.

Traffic will be reduced with lane closures Mondays through Saturdays during the roughly six-week work period.

Northeast Paving of Lewiston is the contractor for the project, which costs $1.2 million.
