Opponents to Proposed East-West Highway Testify Before Transportation Committee

AUGUSTA - The East-West Highway was the subject of testimony today before the Legislature's Transportation Committee.
The Committee is considering a number of bills aimed at killing the project or slowing its progress. Small business owners were among those testifying against the proposed highway today. They fear it will end up taking away business from their parts of the state.
Supporters want to build a 220 mile toll highway from Calais to the New Hampshire border to provide a better trucking route across the state.
They say it will create jobs and boost the economy. Among the bills being considered today is one that would repeal the call for a feasibility study.
