Turnpike spur just an outdated dream


Re: A proposed spur from Gorham to the Maine Turnpike

I lived between routes 22 and 114 for almost 40 years and that’s all we heard from MDOT, town managers and political types.  I would suggest that you circle the 12th of Never as the opening date of this latest headline attempt.

This plan should have been acted upon 40 to 45 years ago when there was open land to be crossed, not people’s homes that would now need to be bulldozed.  The old neighborhood will undoubtedly change in he coming years, but it won’t be due to this daydream.
