East-West Highway in Maine
April 5, 2012  
East-West Highway

It's an idea that's been discussed for years, building an east-west highway in Maine. The legislature has just approved funding to study the feasibility of a four lane private highway from Calais to Coburn Gore. Supporters say it would transform the economy of Northern and Eastern Maine. Others are concerned about environmental impacts. This week on Maine Watch, we'll discuss the idea with Cianbro CEO Peter Vigue, who has been a champion of the idea, and Barbara Charry of Maine Audubon.
