Senator Kim Rosen Announces Local Projects in Maine DOT Work Plan
AUGUSTA – Maine State Senator Kim Rosen (R-Hancock) has announced 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 more than 1,200 projects scheduled for 2017.
Among the projects scheduled in Senate District 8 are bridge and road maintenance in Bucksport, drainage maintenance in Castine, bridge maintenance in Dedham and work on the Penobscot Narrows Observatory.
“I would like to thank the MDOT for announcing their plans for work throughout the senate district,” Senator Rosen said. “All of these projects are very important to those who use these roads and bridges, and I look forward to working with MDOT on the Transportation Committee over the next two years.”
