Lower Road bridge abutments demolished

Ed Lecuyer:
The various studies are predicated on moving the Portland station to somewhere along the CSX/PanAm mainline and away from Thompsons Point. The issue is that the good station sites are not available - and the shopping plaza where Union Station was has just been sold to Maine Medical Center.

If the ex-GT route is chosen, there is no provision for connecting to the Downeaster south of Portland - one of the major drawbacks of selecting that route. Instead, they propose a cross-platform connection at Yarmouth Jct.
