We’ve all fallen victim to the Casco Bay Bridge being up exactly when we need to be somewhere important. Well to limit this frustration, I use a text alert from the Maine DOT site that notifies me when the bridge will be going up. It’s not a precise alert. We’re notified about 15 – 20 minutes prior to the bridge going up but I’m grateful for any heads up. It takes a few minutes to sign up with some hoops to go through, but it’s worth it. If you don’t already have the alert set up, I’ve created a convenient link on my site to sign up directly.
