Trafton Realty LLC has proposed a new interchange in Waterville near the Sidney town line. The plans for the proposed $6 million dollar project would be for entering and exiting Interstate 95 at Trafton Road, near the Sidney town line.

The public will have a chance to comment on the proposed project on May 8th at Thomas College in Waterville.

A third of the construction cost would be paid by Trafton, a third by the state and a third by the city of Waterville.

Those in favor of the interchange say it ease traffic flow on Kennedy Memorial Drive and help minimize emergency response times for vehicles going to MaineGeneral Medical Center’s Alfond Center for Health in Augusta.

Some critics of the plan say they’re concerned about increased traffic in a quiet, rural setting.
