MaineDOT, in conjunction with the Bangor Area Comprehensive Transportation System and the Federal Highway Administration, is holding a public informational meeting concerning the Bangor I-95 Corridor Study this Thursday, November 12 at 7 p.m. at the Bangor Banquet and Conference Facility at 701 Hogan Road in Bangor.
This is the second of three public informational meetings designed to present information about the Bangor I-95 Corridor Study and to receive and respond to questions and comments from the public.
Representatives of the Study Team will be present to explain the deficiencies identified along the I-95 Corridor, describe potential actions to address these deficiencies, and obtain input from the public. After a formal presentation, Team members will be available to discuss Study-related issues with the public in an informal one-to-one format.
Motorists unable to attend can also provide their input through an online survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=MxQ7ISP4Dyj_2foBDUn_2f5pQw_3d_3d The MaineDOT also has a web page dedicated to the study at http://www.maine.gov/mdot/bangori95study/index.htm.
Thursday will be the second of at least three public meetings designed to gather citizen input for the study. Along with soliciting input from the public, MaineDOT is working with a public advisory committee that includes people representing Bangor and Brewer, public safety agencies, and major traffic generators in the area such as the Bangor Mall and Eastern Maine Medical Center.
Along with the input received from the public and the advisory committee, MaineDOT will evaluate traffic and accident data on the interstate, at exit ramps, on arterials leading to the highway, and identify proposed improvements to address problem locations.
