We have completed the final trail easement for the Close the Gap segment, which allows up to move forward with construction.
We anticipate that the Close the Gap project connecting Scarborough and South Portland will be ready to go out to construction bidding by January 30, 2023.
Please remember this project will take 18-24 months to complete, but we plan to get started soon!
