Park Street Corridor Study
The Park Street Transportation Study will assess and analyze the traffic system management improvements that could be made to the Park Street (Route 2) corridor, from the Orono - Old Town line up to, and including, the approaches of College Avenue.
The Town of Orono has assembled an Advisory Committee consisting of town staff, the MaineDOT, BACTS, and university, resident, and business-owner representatives. The Town and Committee encourage the public’s input in this study to ensure the study’s recommendations for corridor improvements will address the needs of the community.
