FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUGUSTA – Maine State Senator Paul Davis (R-Piscataquis) has announced local transportation projects included in the Maine Department of Transportation (MDOT) Work Plan for Calendar Years 2018, 2019 and 2020. The estimated value of work in the plan totals more than $2.3 billion and encompasses 2,262  projects across the state.

It includes more than $1.4 billion in highway, bridge and multimodal capital work, more than $1.1 billion in highway and bridge projects and more than $296 million in multimodal capital projects.

Among the major projects in Senate District 4 include highway improvement along Route 7 in Dover-Foxcroft beginning at Shaw Rd., bridge maintenance in Guilford, safety upgrades at the Dexter Regional Airport and highway paving in Palmyra.

“This is very important publication, and I would like to thank MDOT for all of their hard work,” Senator Davis said. “It is critical for the people of District 4 to know how their infrastructure is being maintained, because it affects their safety. There are also important economic implications to having sound roads and bridges, and this publication will help citizens understand what is being done in their communities.”
