Woodford's Corner Public Improvement Plans

The Project


The public improvements to Woodford's Corner build on the vision from the Transforming Forest Avenue plan to promote livability, economic vibrancy, accessibility and mobility in Woodford's Corner. Building on the assets already existing in the area, the plans will provide better pedestrian and bicycle crossings, new street furnishings and public spaces, better transit routing, and better traffic circulation.

The Woodford's Corner plans are a partnership between the City of Portland, the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System, and the Maine Department of Transportation. Construction is expected to begin in August 2017 with construction being completed in the Fall 2018.

The MaineDOT, which is managing the construction project, has established a project web page on which additional information will be made available. The webpage is http://maine.gov/mdot/projects/portland/woodfordscorner/.
