Portland’s Bayside Bowl breaks ground for expansion
Bayside Bowl in Portland, Maine, current home to the PBA Maine Experience, including PBA League Elias Cup competition and the Xtra Frame PBA Maine Shootout, has begun its multi-million-dollar expansion project that will add eight lanes to its existing facility along with a rooftop deck, mezzanine level and more.
“We’re excited to be here because we think over the next 10 to 15 years, Bayside is going to be a place where there is a lot more housing, a lot more retail, a lot more people living, working and eating,” said co-owner and state Senator Justin Alfond. “I think we will be at the center of it.”
The expansion project is expected to create 30-40 summer construction jobs and 15-20 new full-time jobs when the project is completed in November.
