Senator James Hamper Announces Local Projects Included in Maine DOT Work Plan

Augusta – Senator James Hamper (R-Oxford) has announced the local transportation projects included in the Maine Department of Transportation Work Plan for Calendar Years 2017, 2018 and 2019. The estimated value of work in the plan totals more than $2.3 billion and encompasses 2,411 projects across the state.

The Work Plan includes everything from capital projects and programs to maintenance, operations projects and other activities.

The projects and activities listed for Calendar Year 2017 are more firmly funded and have definite schedules, while listings for 2018 and 2019 are more subject to change based on funding and prices, permitting variables and seasonal weather conditions. There are over 1,200 projects scheduled for 2017.

Among the projects scheduled in Senate District 19 include improvements to Route 93 in Bridgton; Route 117 in Bridgton, Harrison, Norway, Oxford, Otisfield and Paris; Route 26, Route 121 and King Street in Oxford; Route 5 in Hiram; Route 107 in Bridgton and Sebago; and Long Hill Road in Sebago.

“It’s encouraging to see the large number of projects the Department of Transportation has on the docket for Oxford and Cumberland Counties over the next three years. Maintaining high quality roads and infrastructure is a critical component to attract new employers to the area,” said Sen. Hamper.

The full work plan, including an interactive plan that is searchable by municipality, can be accessed on the Maine Department of Transportation’s website at: http://www.maine.gov/mdot.
