8/14/2019 - Public Meeting for Safety Improvements at Broadway, Earle Avenue, & I-95 on Thursday, August 22

Public Meeting for Safety Improvements at Broadway, Earle Avenue, & I-95 Ramps on Thursday, August 22

An informational meeting will be held in Council Chambers, 3rd floor, Bangor City Hall, on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 5:00pm to review recommended safety improvements along a portion of Broadway (Route 15) from the intersection of Center Street and the I-95 northbound ramps to the intersection of Broadway and the I-95 southbound ramps.

This section of Broadway was identified within the 2015 Broadway Corridor Study as experiencing a higher-than-average number of accidents and heavy congestion during weekday commuting periods. The Maine Department of Transportation has funded a project to evaluate this portion of Broadway and design safety improvements to address the high number of crashes and vehicle congestion on this segment of Broadway. The City of Bangor selected Gorrill Palmer Consulting Engineers, Inc. to provide traffic evaluation and design services for this project. This is the third public meeting for this project.

The purpose of this meeting is to review the preliminary design plans for safety improvements with the public and address any questions and concerns they may have. The proposed improvements include modifications at the intersections of Broadway/Center Street/NB ramps and Broadway/SB ramps. The improvements also include changes to access at the intersection of Earle Avenue and Broadway.

Representatives of the City of Bangor Engineering Department and engineers from Gorrill Palmer will be present at the meeting. Those unable to attend can view the meeting live on local cable channel 1303, or online at Town Hall Streams. If you have any questions or would like further information regarding this public meeting, please feel free to contact John Theriault, City Engineer, at (207) 992-4249.
