ST. STEPHEN, N.B. — The Department of Transportation released a preliminary assessment of options for a new St. Stephen-Calais, Me. border crossing.
The study, assesses two options for a third border crossing in the area: a crossing between St. Stephen and Baileyville, Me., or between St. Stephen and the Calais Industrial Park.
It considers issues such as length, travel time, levels of service, construction costs, community access, and long-term trade corridor connections.
“For the last few years, the Government of New Brunswick, through the Department of Transportation, has been working very closely with the Maine Department of Transportation on the St. Stephen-Calais border crossing,” Transportation Minister Percy Mockler says.
“This study is being released to keep people in southwestern New Brunswick informed of the direction the project is taking.”
