Take Action to Stop Corporate East-West Highway!
The Cianbro Corporation wants to build a 220-mile toll superhighway that would cut through the heart of Maine's north woods from New Brunswick to Quebec.
This "East-West" truck transport highway would endanger our waterways and air quality, increase noise and light pollution, harm key wilderness recreational areas, and diminish the tourism experience in the region.
Cianbro lobbyists have been traveling the state to get this superhighway built. Maine citizens need to push back with a strong message that the $2 billion, privately-owned highway would threaten dozens of local communities, landowner private property rights, and potentially leave Maine taxpayers on the hook for this risky project.
The more people we get to sign, the louder our voice.
A smarter idea would be to study the sustainable option of moving goods across Maine on the existing train infrastructure.
Don't let the corporate lobbyists drown us out.
