Stockton Harbor: Maine DOT wants input on replacing the bridge to Cape Jellison

Cape Jellison Bridge fans: Maine DOT is hosting a talk about its future on August 31st at the Stockton Springs town office. 

The bridge crosses Mill Stream - separating Cape Jellison from the mainland. Mill Stream connects fully intertidal Mill Pond from Mill Cove of Stockton Harbor. MDOT says the bridge is in need of major maintenance or replacement

I spoke with Leanne Timberlake, the project's senior manager. She said this is still very early phase. Hmmm...heard THAT before...) 

She understand the bridge's infrastructure to be in need or renovation and replacement. But she also said the project so far is planned as a one for one replacement, not an expansion of the bridge.

MDOT's public announcement says " They are "very interested in learning local views relative to project consistency with local comprehensive plans, discovering local resources, and identifying local concerns and issues. Anyone with an interest is invited to attend and participate in the meeting."

Again, that's Monday August 31st, Stockton Springs Town Hall, 217 Main Street Stockton Springs.
