On Tuesday, June 14 Falmouth voters will decide whether or not to approve a proposal to fund major infrastructure improvements along Route 100. This proposal will improve the roadway, drainage, intersections, bicycle lanes, and sidewalks. The project is expected to receive major funding support from the Maine Department of Transportation. The municipal portion of the costs will be funded through the West Falmouth Crossing Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District. Because the project will be funded through the TIF district, there will be no increase in the tax rate for this project.
The Route 100 Project includes:
- Making the Mountain/Falmouth Rd/Rt. 100 intersection and Leighton Rd/Rt. 100 intersection safer with dedicated turning lanes and traffic lights
- Rebuilding Route 100 from Leighton Road to Libby Bridge
- Improving pedestrian safety by adding sidewalks
- Improving street and pedestrian lighting with LED fixtures
- Extending public sewer on Route 100 between Leighton and Mountain/Falmouth Road
- Replacing deteriorating stormwater drainage infrastructure
- Adding bicycle lanes from Portland city line to Libby Bridge (with consistent striping to Winslow Farm).
