To discuss the efforts of Lower Road Rail Use Advisory Council.

MaineDOT will host a presentation followed by a Question-and-Answer period to  discuss the ongoing
efforts of the Lower Road Rail Use Advisory Council (Council).  The purpose of the Council is to
facilitate discussion, gather information and provide advice to the MaineDOT commissioner regarding
future use of the state-owned rail corridor.
The corridor council process was established (23 MRSA §75) by the Maine State Legislature in 2021.

The meeting will give the public an opportunity to provide input to the Council regarding the
future use of the Lower Road rail line from Brunswick to Augusta.   We are particularly interested
in learning local and regional views and identifying concerns and issues.

Accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities.
