The Maine Department of Transportation will host an open house to discuss possible transportation improvements to Route 1 in Warren on Wednesday, Dec. 8.

The open house is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Warren Community School on Eastern Road in Warren. There will be a short presentation to begin the event, but the remainder of the open house will be informal discussion and a review of the project area.

The discussion will focus on ways to improve Route 1 from a half mile south of the intersection of Sandy Shores Road to Cushing Road in Warren. The meeting is open to all, and Maine DOT encouraged residents, business owners, community leaders, local officials, neighborhood groups and commuters to attend the open house. Public input will be a key component of any transportation solution designed to enhance the use or safety of the corridor, DOT said.
