ROCKLAND, Maine — A section of Pleasant Street will be closed for up to three weeks to accommodate the ongoing construction of a five-story hotel.
The code office issued the road closure permit to allow for construction of the hotel at the intersection of Main and Pleasant streets. The short section of Pleasant Street that runs from Union to Main streets was closed Monday morning and will be closed through April 30.
A two-week closure occurred in January to allow for a crane to be placed on the street and structural steel to be brought in on a flatbed truck.
The hotel was approved by the Rockland Planning Board in June.
The ADZ project — its principal owner being Cabot Lyman of Lyman Morse Boatbuilding in Thomaston — will stand 57 feet high with an elevator shaft reaching 61 feet and solar panels that will increase the overall height to 70 feet.
The 26-suite hotel project is estimated to cost $2.9 million.
