There is a public comment period about the conservation proposal until July 29.
The Holden wetlands would serve as an offset for the impact of the construction of a 6-mile connector between Interstate 395 in Brewer and Route 9 in Eddington, the Bangor Daily News reported. The connector project has been subject to debate for years and has faced opposition from local officials and others. The Maine Department of Transportation is hopeful that major work on the project will be able to begin September. The agency needs approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to preserve the land as a conservation offset.
