BANGOR, (Maine)--Work is already underway at the Bangor waterfront. Crews are busy moving dirt in preparation for next year's concert series.

City officials say the project will change the landscape of the waterfront. The area is being redesigned so that the concert stage will face downtown.

Officials hope the new direction will send concert noise away from residential areas. Bangor City Manager Kathy Conlow says if the new set up works, the city council may then vote to develop a permanent amphitheater.

The city of Bangor is planning to evaluate the new stage set up as the concert season unfolds.
