In the Hancock County town of Trenton, folks driving along Route 3 between Ellsworth and Mount Desert Island will notice a long-awaited sight — the start of construction on the Acadia Gateway Center.

“All the timber framing is up for the new building,” says Ed Karpinski, resident engineer on the project for the Maine Department of Transportation.

The $27.7 million transit hub and welcome center were a long time coming….

In 2002, Friends of Acadia began planning phase two. It 2007, the nonprofit sold 152 acres fronting Route 3 to to MDOT, the project’s owner.

The center is designed to serve as a location where visitors can access regional tourism information, buy park entrance passes and connect with transit options to help them explore the region car-free.
