Machias dike discussions heat up in advance of June 28 public meeting

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

In 1868, Machias replaced a bridge with a dike to carry travelers across the Machias and Middle Rivers. This month, plans appear to be moving in the opposite direction, following Maine Department of Transportation’s (DOT) June 9 announcement that a bridge is the “preferred alternative” to replace the Machias dike and causeway.

DOT will host a meeting about the dike replacement project at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, at the Machias Memorial High School Gymnasium. A large turnout is expected.
