The access road leading to Acadia National Park’s Cadillac Mountain opened on Saturday, a week ahead of schedule. Park officials announced in March that the 27-mile Park Loop Road, the Cadillac Mountain Summit Road, and the visitor center would open a month later than their usual mid-April openings because of automatic federal spending cuts that slashed $390,000 from the park’s budget. Superintendent Sheridan Steele said the Cadillac Mountain road, which had been slated to open May 17, opened earlier in response to concerns from the island’s business community. Merchants offered to help out with trash removal and portable toilet service.
