Story by Brad Perry
Opposition in beginning to mount against a proposed toll highway in the state of Maine.
A feasibility study is looking at the benefits of a 350-kilometre toll highway in the state, which would cost two-billion dollars.
But 17 environmental groups from across North America are giving a no to the highway.
But Peter Vigue says he is still hopeful the highway will happen.
In a recent interview with the Telegraph-Journal, the CEO of Cianbro Companies says he is optimistic that the majority of people in Maine want the highway.
But he also warned there will always be environmental opposition to the project.
Vigue says the project could begin in as little as three years and would take three years to complete.
When completed, it would save four hours for drivers between Saint John and Montreal.
