The Midcoast Bypass Task Force
The Midcoast Bypass Task Force was formed to create a diverse, regional group of stakeholders to help guide MaineDOT and the Federal Highway Administration through the public comment aspect of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process.
This group consists of representatives from Wiscasset, Edgecomb, Alna, Westport Island, Woolwich, Newcastle, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, Lincoln County, the Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association, the Chewonki Foundation and Friends of Coastal Preservation.

Once the DEIS is published and distributed, the task force will work on a six-month timetable to reach resolution on the bypass' final route. Their recommendation must then be reviewed by MaineDOT for final approval by the Federal Highway Administration.
