I-395/Route 9 Transportation Study

Project Information
Sector: Surface Transportation
Project Category: 
DOT Projects
Project Status: 
Complete
Description: 

MaineDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
are conducting this study to:

1.  Improve regional system linkage

2.  Improve safety

3.  Improve the current and future flow of traffic and the shipment of goods between I-395
and Route 9

4.  Avoid and minimize adverse impacts to natural, social, cultural, and economic resources and features

It is envisioned that the results would be the construction of a new two-lane road from I-395 to Route 9 or improvements to existing roads. If a new two-lane road is constructed, it would be a limited-access road crossing over or under the intersecting streets. The only exception could be a new interchange with Route 1A.
