Study Schedule

The Maine-NH Connections Study began in March 2009 and will be completed in June 2010. By October 2009, we will have identified which alternatives are feasible, allowing us to spend the remainder of the study conducting a more detailed evaluation of how the remaining alternatives will best serve the needs of the communities and the users.
