by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A state plan to repair and rebuild the Machias dike has gone back to the drawing board.

The state’s 2018 plan to rebuild the dike in its current form has been moved from the development phase back to the planning phase, according to a letter to Machias Town Manager Christina Therrien dated Dec. 9. In the letter, Maine Department of Transportation Planner Nate Howard cited concerns over adverse effects on critical Atlantic salmon habitat.
