Brunswick Forum Hears Objections to Proposed Downeaster Maintenance Facility
The proposed location of the Downeaster maintenance facility in Brunswick was the subject of a public forum last night. The MDOT-sponsored session heard from residents who, though welcoming the arrival of Downeaster service next fall, expressed deep concerns about the location of the work area in their neighborhood. They cited expected noise, light and air pollution as primary concerns.
NNEPRA's Excecutive Director Patricia Quinn informed residents that other sites will be examined before a final decision is made.
The 40,000 square foot shed will house up to three trainsets when service to Freeport and Brunswick commences in the fall of 2012.
