Sunrise County Economic Council (SCEC) announced Friday that it is partnering with Cianbro to present a pair of public informational meetings on the company’s proposed East-West Highway project. The East-West Highway corridor is expected to span the state of Maine from Coburn Gore in the western mountains to Calais in the east. Company officials hope to boost shipping across Maine, the Northeastern states and Atlantic Canada by designing a highway that reduces travel time and congestion on both the Route 1 and 1-95 corridors, while making the privately financed highway attractive to Maine-based businesses.
Both meetings will be held Friday, January 18. The first will be at Shead High School (Band Room) in Eastport from 2:45 – 4pm. The second will be at Washington County Community College’s Assembly Room in Riverview Hall from 5:30-6:30 PM.
To register for one of these informational meetings, or for more information, please contact SCEC Communications Manager Will Tuell at 207-255-0983 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Both sessions are open to the public and free to attend.
