The Bangor City Council has given final approval to a $433,777 construction project that will make it easier for bicyclists and pedestrians to avoid the knots of vehicles heading to shopping centers on Stillwater Avenue and Hogan Road. This spring, the city will construct a nearly half-mile paved trail that starts on the western edge of Eastern Maine Community College and wraps around the off-ramp of Interstate 95 before depositing riders and walkers on Stillwater Avenue. When the trail is finally opened to the public later this year, it will start at the western end of Sylvan Road — which starts on Hogan Road and runs past car dealerships, a hotel and EMCC’s Rangeley Hall. The new trail will then extend through the wooded area just south of the I-95 off-ramp before ending on Stillwater Avenue, just south of the I-95 overpass.
