The state paid Portland $450,000 for the right to build part of the new Portland
The state paid Portland $450,000 for the right to build part of the new Portland-South Portland Bridge over city land, and city administrators plan to use those funds for the train station that will serve Amtrak passengers when train service returns to Portland next year. The train station is expected to cost $1.8 million, with $1.3 million coming from the federal government. City Manager Robert B. Ganley said that setting aside the $450,000 for the train station will demonstrate to city taxpayers that the funds are not coming out of local property taxes. Details.
