AUGUSTA – State Representative Dick Bradstreet (R-Vassalboro) is pleased to announce that the Maine Department of Transportation (MDOT) Work Plan for Calendar Years 2022, 2023 and 2024 is available. The estimated value of work in the plan totals more than 2,316 individual work items with a total value of $3.17 billion. This represents a substantial increase from last year due to anticipated federal funding.
The MDOT Work Plan for House District 80 includes $31.8 million for several area projects, including:
- In Augusta: Bridge replacement of the Western Avenue/I-95 Bridge located just south of Old Winthrop Road. Replacing the Rines Hill Bridge over the Old Maine Central Railroad just north of Green Street.
- Highway safety and spot and improvements beginning at Route 201 and extending east for 1 mile on Route 202.
- Highway construction/rehabilitation beginning just east of the intersection of Granite Hill Road and extending east for 1.67 miles
- In Vassalboro: Highway construction/Rehabilitation beginning 1.14 miles north of Gray Road and extending north for almost 1 mile.
“This year’s Maine DOT Work Plan projects have been enhanced by federal dollars,” said Rep. Bradstreet. “This will help DOT offset the unprecedented increases in labor and material costs that we are all experiencing with our family budgets. I am pleased to see MDOT has more to spend this year and the projects scheduled for the next three years in our area. They will make our roads safer and benefit local economy.”
