BANGOR – Bangor’s city council voting to make Clinton Street a one way street. It’s part of an effort to ease congestion and the number of crashes at the intersection of Hammond and Ohio Streets.
The Maine DOT plans to make changes at the intersection this summer and the council decided making Clinton Street one way should be part of the project.
Not all councilors and residents are in favor of the move. They say a lot of people use Clinton as they make their way downtown, but others feel the change should be made now while state money is available and before traffic increases in the area over the years ahead.
