What is the “Close the Gap” campaign? A $4.1 million fundraising effort to close a critical 1.6 mile gap between Scarborough and South Portland. Once complete, we will enjoy 16 miles of continuous, off-road trail for transportation and recreational use between Bug Light in South Portland and Downtown Saco.
Currently, we have approximately $500,000 to raise before we can break ground.
The Maine Department of Transportation has committed to helping fill this gap. From Maine DOT’s David Bernhardt’s letter to the ETA:

“I am pleased and impressed with the efforts of your agency to fundraise to enable this project to complete the gap on the Eastern Trail. The large number of individual donors is a testament to the importance of the trail............I wanted to acknowIedge the Department’s intent to provide the additional funding to reassure your donors that the project is close to the construction phase........I strongly encourage you to continue your fundraising efforts.”
