Machias board talks proposed Elm Street bypass corridor

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Preliminary work is being done to create a corridor of land that could one day let trucks bypass the residential side of Elm Street, instead traveling directly from Route 1 to Stackpole Road in Machias.

Tractor-trailers are a regular — and often unwelcome —  presence on Elm Street as some travel to the Maine Wild factory and others to Machiasport seafood companies. The proposed bypass would allow the trucks to circumvent the tightest curves of Elm Street, near the Machias Valley Grange Hall.
