KENNEBUNK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — A critical link in the Eastern Trail, a 60 mile long multi-use recreation trail stretching from South Portland to Kittery, is set to open soon.
“I think for the first time the Eastern Trail is really on the map,” stated Bob Hamblen, president of the Eastern Trail Alliance. “We feel like we are opening the door a little bit and saying, world come on in. We’ve got a trail, we’ve got a new bridge, we are building more trail as we speak, so come in and check us out.”
What has Hamblen so excited is construction on a $3 million bridge spanning the Maine Turnpike, connecting two sections of trail, will be complete in the next week to ten days.
