West Commercial Street Pathway Design

W. Commercial PDR

Through the West Commercial Street Pathway project, the City of Portland, in consultation with the MaineDOT, is designing a portion of the West Commercial Street Pathway along the frontage of the Star Match building.  This segment is just one of many vital missing links in the plan to create a circumferential shared use pathway network around the Portland Peninsula, and when complete, will help to extend the Fore River Trail from its existing terminus to the east.  


On January 13, 2021, the City of Portland held a public meeting to review draft plans for the project, but it is not too late to provide input.  To review the draft plans from the meeting, click here.  Comments can be sent directly to Nell Donaldson at hcd@portlandmaine.gov.
