During the meeting, County Administrator John O’Connell shared plans prepared by the Maine Department of Transportation for the sidewalk and signal project. The project will cost $620,000 and is funded from federal funds (80 percent) and state funds (20 percent). Maine Department of Transportation Project Manager Aurele Gorneau explained the project in a follow up interview with the Boothbay Register/Wiscasset Newspaper. According to Gorneau, there were originally two projects, one for the traffic signal and one for the sidewalks, but given the proximity of the work area, they were combined into one project.
