Boat operator floats idea of Maine-NH water taxi

The Associated Press

KITTERY, Maine — A tour boat captain wants to offer water taxi service between Maine and New Hampshire this summer while a new bridge over the Piscataqua River is being built.

Neal Odams says the service would run between downtown Kittery and downtown Portsmouth while the Memorial Bridge is under construction.

Odams now offers 30-minute leisurely tours on his 14-foot passenger boat that run from Kittery Point to Portsmouth.

He says a taxi service between the two downtowns would take just a few minutes.

Kittery Town Planner Gerry Mylroie told the Portsmouth Herald that the town is working to find a site in Kittery where Odams could operate.

Memorial Bridge shut down to traffic last summer. Its replacement is scheduled to open next year.
