Drones will survey for Machias dike as replacement planning moves ahead

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A plan to fix the aging Machias dike will take another step forward when Maine Department of Transportation drones will survey the Middle River and its adjoining properties beginning next week. DOT Chief Engineer Joyce Taylor said the DOT chose drones as a way to survey without entering private land.

“We’re looking at getting elevation levels so that when we assess the alternatives [for] the Machias dike project, we’ll know what might actually get flooded with each alternative,” said Taylor.
