BDN readers want steel plate removed from middle of Ohio Street

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A steel plate in the middle of Ohio Street has Bangor Daily News readers wanting it removed, according to the See It, Fix It feature on the BDN website.

According to readers, the steel plate, which is located near the Thomas Hill Standpipe, extends four to six inches above the roadway.

The plate is on the inbound side of Ohio Street.

Readers have reported plenty of other problems. Among them are a tree that is blocking the view of traffic at the Cony traffic circle in Augusta; the need for a sidewalk from the Bangor Mall intersection to Stillwater Avenue on Hogan Road in Bangor; potholes on Call Road in Milford; and an abandoned trailer on Route 15 in Shirley.

Other problems include a bumpy Route 69 from Plymouth to Detroit; a damaged drain at the intersection of Moosehead Trail and High Street in Newport; pedestrians ignoring a crosswalk on Route 15 in Dover-Foxcroft near the Riverview apartment complex; and a destroyed roadbed at the corner of Franklin and Harlow streets in Bangor.

Readers can report issues with roadways within their communities by accessing in the BDN’s See It, Fix It feature.
