The City of Ellsworth, in cooperation with MaineDOT and VHB, is hosting a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 at 6:00 pm as part of Ellsworth’s Bicycle/Pedestrian Trail Connectivity Feasibility Study. VHB is completing this study, which is part of a Public Partnership Initiative (PPI) between the City and MaineDOT. The PPI process encourages soliciting the valuable input of local residential and business stakeholders to better understand the needs of the community.

The study’s purpose is to evaluate the feasibility, cost and impacts of a bicycle/pedestrian trail extension between the terminus of the Sunrise Trail, which ends in the vicinity of the intersection of Beals Avenue and High Street, to the terminus of the existing City Bicycle/Pedestrian Trail, which ends at its intersection with Birch Avenue. The focus of this initial public meeting will be to identify the study area limits, review the existing conditions within the study area, and solicit input from the community to help guide the alternatives evaluation process and better understand the issues and concerns related to the trail extension.

A copy of the Study Area Map is available for viewing. Please direct any questions or comments, both before or after the meeting, to:
