Dyer Family Agreement 

The family claimed that they weren’t given enough money when the state seized their restaurant and surrounding land to make way for the Penobscot Narrows Bridge five years ago.

The Dyers were given $225,000 in that initial deal.

They filed a lawsuit seeking upwards of to two million dollars.

The two sides have now agreed to a settlement of $725,000.

The D.O.T. released a joint statement with the Dyers, saying the settlement ends the dispute in a manner that all agree is fair to both parties and to the entire Dyer family.
