BANGOR, Maine — More than three years after two women were struck by a van on Hogan Road, a $211,000 construction project will bring pedestrian facilities to the busy road that has seen more foot traffic in recent years.

Bangor city councilors voted Monday night to allocate $35,200 in local tax increment financing money to fund the local share of the project. The Maine Department of Transportation is covering the remaining 80 percent.

The sidewalk will start at Springer Drive and extend to Stillwater Avenue, a distance of about 1,900 feet. A trio of crosswalks also will be installed at intersections along that stretch — One at the Bangor Mall entrance, another at the Stillwater intersection and the third at the Longview Drive intersection.

In late 2012, two Canadian sisters on a shopping trip in Bangor were struck by a van when they attempted to cross Hogan Road near Olive Garden. Both sisters survived, though one was listed in critical condition after the crash.

That crash sparked a call for new pedestrian infrastructure on the road, which to this point hasn’t had any. Pedestrian traffic has increased in the area in recent years, primarily from tourists and shoppers walking from hotels to area restaurants and big box stores.

The project was backed by city councilors, and the city was awarded a federal grant in 2013 to put toward the construction project.

City Engineer John Theriault said he hopes to complete the project this summer, but may have to push it to next summer if it takes longer than expected to get state approvals. Construction should take about six weeks, he added.

The project has sat idle, despite being added to the state’s work plan in 2013, because state construction funding didn’t become available until this year.

In other business, the council approved a sublease that will allow the owner of Harvest Moon Deli — a sandwich shop with locations in Orono, Bangor and Brewer — to set up shop in a building shared with Union Street Athletics at 366 Griffin Road.

Keith Manaker, owner of Harvest Moon, said he hopes to set up a 20-25-seat restaurant in the 925-square foot space attached to the gym. The restaurant will have its own entrance and a similar menu to the other locations, he said.

“I don’t see anyone else doing quick service restaurants out there,” Manaker said of the location.

He said the shop would offer people who work in the area or people hitting the gym an option other than fast food or sit-down family restaurants.

He said he hopes to open in late April or early May.
