The Maine Department of Transportation is seeking public input on its plan to rebuild a major commuter road that connects Portland and Westbrook with Windham and the Lakes Region.

State officials have scheduled a meeting for 6 p.m. March 8 in Windham on their plan to rebuild more than 3 miles of River Road from the Westbrook line north into Windham.
