Bike and Pedestrian Access
MaineDOT, its engineering consultant and the design-build contractor are working to not only improve U.S. Route 201 through Farmingdale for vehicular traffic, but for bicycle and pedestrian traffic as well.
In the planning and design process, care was taken to accommodate and account for the presence of the Kennebec River Rail Trail pedestrian and bicycle path that runs adjacent to an approximate 2,950 foot section of Route 201.
While currently there is sidewalk along only a portion of the 1.5-mile reconstruction zone, a new sidewalk will be constructed on the west side of Route 201 along the entire 1.5-mile section. New cross-walks with “Pedestrian Crossing” signs and blinking caution lights will help pedestrians and bicyclists cross the road to get to the trail network on the east side of the road. Plus, there will be wide paved shoulders on each side of the highway.
