Transportation Plan

Acadia National Park announced the release of the Final Transportation Plan and accompanying Environmental Impact Statement (Final Plan/EIS) on March 25, 2019. The Final Plan/EIS is the culmination of a planning effort that began in summer 2015 and included a great deal of time, energy, collaboration, and input by neighboring town governments, chambers of commerce, industry partners, communities, stakeholders, National Park Service staff, and the public. Full implementation of the plan is likely to take up to a decade or more, though initial work may begin in 2020.

Crowds of visitors in the summer and, increasingly, into the fall and spring, are making it difficult for people to experience the best of Acadia. Crowded conditions in the park also cause safety hazards.
