Those grants, available from the Maine and U.S. departments of Transportation, will cover $800,000 of the $1.1 million project to refurbish the old Boston & Maine Railroad Station on Depot Street.

“This is quite a complex project because of the requirements for the federal monies,” Tibbetts said at the board’s Oct. 27 meeting.
