Sidewalk project

SOUTHWEST HARBOR – After meeting with the Maine Department of Transportation regarding construction of a sidewalk along south Main Street, town officials learned the project could go out to bid earlier than expected.

Town Manager Don Lagrange said the legwork done by the town to prepare for the project led to the new schedule.

“We’re way ahead of the curve,” Lagrange told selectmen.

The project is now expected to go out to bid in September of next year. The town has been awarded nearly $500,000 in grant money for the project and has applied $49,000 of its own funds toward design work. The project consists of constructing 1,500 feet of sidewalk and making other improvements between Village at Ocean’s End and Apple Lane.
