EDMUNDSTON, N.B. — Officials from the town of Edmundston and northern Maine will be meeting Friday with the state’s transport commissioner to discuss a proposed four-lane highway into Maine.
There are 13 proposed routes on the table and Maine transport commissioner, John Melrose, hopes to narrow that down to one or two.
Arthur Faucher, Madawaska town manager, says it’s important that the Canadian communities vying for a piece of the action come to an agreement among themselves.
"What I foresee, if we can’t come to some kind of a common conclusion is that they’ll just come along and decide for themselves what route to take," says Faucher.
One possibility that would benefit Edmundston businesses is four-lane highway construction into Maddawaska, with a new bridge built to connect the Trans-Canada Hwy. at St-Basile.
