New parking lot under construction in Fort Kent
FORT KENT, Maine — Development of a new parking lot is well under way downtown on Main Street.
The public parking is located at an empty lot between the China Garden restaurant and Aroostook Real Estate office.
The town is funding construction of the parking lot, for which JBBC, Inc. is the general contractor, with funds from a $300,000 downtown revitalization grant that Fort Kent’s Planning and Economic Development Director Steve Pelletier secured last year.
The parking lot will be completed by the end of the month, Pelletier said.
