WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Federal officials say a $1 million grant will help pay for a new exit off of Interstate 95 in Waterville, Maine.
Representative Chellie Pingree says the money from the federal Economic Development Administration is a key piece of the funding puzzle for the exit project. The $4.8 million project will also be funded with money from the Maine Department of Transportation and Trafton Realty, which owns about 900 acres in Waterville and Sidney.
Trafton Realty’s property includes a light manufacturing facility that will be provided with increased access by the new Waterville exit. The exit would be midway between the Kennedy Memorial Drive and Lyons Road exits.
