Frank J. Wood Bridge Environmental Process and Review

The Frank J. Wood Bridge (#2016) carries Route 201 over the Androscoggin River on the Brunswick-Topsham town line. MaineDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have concluded the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The NEPA process results in a final decision that balances engineering and transportation needs with social, economic, and natural environmental factors. During the process, the public, businesses, interest groups, and agencies provided input. On March 12, 2019, FHWA concluded the process with a Finding of No Significant Impact for a replacement bridge on an upstream curved alignment.
