If you live in the Orono/Veazie area, you know that the bridge that spans Kelly Road over I-95 is kind of a sad situation. When driving over it, it's kinda like riding over a pair of concrete corduroy. It's like you can hear your tires and rims all squealing in agony as you drive over the Swiss Cheese maze of potholes.

Granted, this same description could be applied to dozens and dozens of roads all over the state. But the Maine DOT has decided to do something about this spot, and they are holding a public meeting about it from 6:00p.m. - 8:00p.m. on January 30th at the Orono Town Office, located at 59 Main Street in Orono.

They're using this opportunity to let the public share their concerns and ideas regarding this stretch of road. They'd love to hear your comments, questions, and concerns. In the press release that came to us here from the Maine DOT, there is no start time listed for the overall project to begin, so even if you don't make this meeting, there may be more chances to share your thoughts.

In fact, if you can't make it, feel free to share your ideas with them via email by sending your messages to Mark Parlin at mark.parlin@maine.gov, or you can give them a jingle at (207) 624-3449.
