“As Chair of the Transportation Committee, I am proud of all the hard work the Department has put into improving our transportation infrastructure over the last several years. This last season alone, Mainers saw an unprecedented 1,000 miles paved around the state. I look forward to continuing to work closely with the department on proposals over the next two years.” said Sen. Collins.
