Maine Turnpike’s York Toll Plaza Project Delayed Further by State Environmental Agency Public Review

Seacoastonline.com reports that Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection has decided to grant the Town of York’s request for a public hearing on the Maine Turnpike Authority’s controversial plan to relocate the York toll plaza, “setting in place a process that could forestall the project by as much as six months.” The town favors installation of an all-electronic tolling (AET) system as an alternative to MTA’s plan for the plaza. The article quotes an environmental agency official as stating that an “open and transparent review” of AET “would be most advantageous.”
