Public to discuss future of L-A interchanges

LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The results of a recent traffic study don't reflect the hopes of some transportation officials but it points them in a new direction.

The most recent traffic study in Lewiston-Auburn indicates that only 11% of people traveling to or from Lewiston-Auburn for work use I-95.

That number does not support the need for new exits that are closer to each City's downtown business district.

But the Maine Turnpike Authority (MTA) and Department of Transportation recognize there are some challenges with the existing exits that hinder access and development options in each city.

Plans are now being considered for updating Exits 75 and 80 and the MTA is looking for input from the public.

Those meetings are set for:

Monday October 4th, 7pm at the Ramada in Lewiston.

Tuesday October 5th, 7pm at the Fireside Inn in Auburn.
