Funding sought for Town Hill road fix

BAR HARBOR — Town councilors will seek state funding for a 50 percent match of the cost of improving the intersection of the Crooked Road, Knox Road and State Highway 102 in Town Hill.

The match is available for small projects under a $7 million fund created by the Maine Department of Transportation this summer, public works director Chip Reeves said Tuesday. Bar Harbor is the third town in Hancock County to consider applying for funding, he said, placing the town in good stead for receiving money from the state.

Draft plans for the intersection include building a bump-out between the Crooked and Knox roads, creating two separate intersections with Route 102.
