The municipalities of Biddeford and Saco, in cooperation with the Eastern Trail Alliance (ETA), Eastern Trail Management District (ETMD), Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) and VHB, held a virtual public meeting on March 8, 2022 as part of the Eastern Trail Feasibility Study within these municipalities. VHB is completing this study, which is part of a Public Partnership Initiative (PPI) between the Municipalities, the Eastern Trail, and MaineDOT. The PPI process encourages soliciting the valuable input of local residents, businesses, and other stakeholders to better understand the needs of the community.
The study’s purpose is to assess the feasibility of connecting the two existing Eastern Trail off-road segments between West Cole Road in Biddeford and Thornton Academy in Saco. The focus of this second public meeting will be to share the alternatives developed for the study area limits, review the preferred treatments determined by the Technical Advisory Committee, and solicit input from the community on the preferred alternatives.
