CLIFTON, Maine — The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a “serious” crash on Route 9 in Clifton Tuesday afternoon.

Penobscot County dispatch confirmed there was a crash there Tuesday afternoon, and in a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office said Route 9 beyond the Route 46 intersection is blocked due to the crash.

The Eddington Fire Department said in a post that as of 1 p.m., Route 9, also known as Airline Road, was closed to one lane, alternating traffic. By around 2 p.m., the fire department told NEWS CENTER Maine the road was reopened but the area remained congested due to backed-up traffic.

No further details about the crash were available. This story is developing and will be updated.
