Making changes for safety's sake

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - A meeting in Portland tonight hopes to make an area along the Eastern Promenade a little safer for pedestrians and drivers.

It's the corner of Cutter Street and the Eastern Prom.

Some people think the configuration is slightly confusing and hard to distinguish where Cutter Street Ends and Eastern Prom begins.

This not only affects the drivers, but pedestrians and people enjoying the promenade, too.

Right now if you're driving east on Eastern Promenade and want to head down to park to enjoy the playground, or tennis courts, you have to make a really sharp left turn.

There have been talks about decreasing the amount of pavement here, reduce the width of the road which would increase site lines, and provide pedistrians with a shorter crosswalk.

Support grows for new travel link from Portland to L-A

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Portland city councilors are expressing their support for looking at the feasibility of developing train, bus or some other commuter transportation service linking Portland with the cities of Lewiston and Auburn.

The City Council this week approved a resolution directing the city manager to work with Lewiston and Auburn, the Maine Department of Transportation and other agencies to secure funding for a study and to work toward advancing the initiative.

Portland Mayor Michael Brennan says a commuter transit service linking the cities would reduce single-passenger car trips and enhance the quality of life and employment opportunities for area residents.

Portland is Maine's largest city and Lewiston, 40 miles to the north, is the second largest in the state.
