LIVERMORE FALLS — A Route 4 Planning Committee has been assembled to work on improvements to the Chisholm area of Jay and Livermore Falls to coincide with road reconstruction the state plans for a 1.1 mile section of the highway.
The section spans both towns and is also known as Main Street there. If a bond package passes in November, the road work is expected to be done by the state in 2010.
Livermore Falls Town Manager Jim Chaousis and Jay Town Manager Ruth Marden along with representatives of the Livermore Falls Downtown Betterment Group, Central Maine Power Co., and Androscoggin River Trust Executive Director Jonathan LaBonte are on the action committee.
They will look at what enhancements could be made to the route to go along with the road project, Chaousis said recently.
They also plan to look at alternate funding such as grants to do the work.
“We’re exploring different avenues,” he said.
Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments also did a recent walking audit with people who turned out to tour the area to find out what people would like to see happen.
