Gateway Project

Project Status: Planning for this project is underway. Construction to begin Fall 2015.

Description: The Federal Highway Administration Scenic Byways Program has awarded Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) a grant of $386,560 with an additional $96,640 in matching funds from the MaineDOT for Gateway Visitor Information Facilities on the Katahdin Woods & Waters Scenic Byway.

  • Grant narrative and budget. When reviewing this document, please keep the following things in mind. The schedule is an estimate only. The current construction target date is fall 2015. The process has begun, but the timeline is flexible. Construction will follow design of the Gateway features and Committee and Public Meetings on those features. The grant provides quite of bit of information about each of the Gateway sites but still gives MaineDOT the flexibility to design those facilities to best tell the byway story and “fit” the location where those facilities will be located.
  • Map of proposed kiosk signs and layout plan.
