2.03.2023 – The 2023 MaineDOT Work Plan is out – it used to be clear (until 2 years ago) what the unmet transportation needs of this state were; the last we knew they were some -$232 million/year. Now with a lot of  word salad, one is left not knowing if Maine is still behind or flush with money…

One thing that I find interesting is that the MaineDOT is still using the same map that shows this new connector blasting right thru an area marked as protected wetlands.

The “I-395 PROTECTED WETLANDS” are north and south of the intersection of I-395/1A and an area adjacent to Green Point Road. One of MaineDOT’s talking points was that the selection of the 2B-2 alternative showed that the DOT were “stewards of the environment”, YET they ignored this map since this study began because it didn’t fit into their plans. Shame on the state and federal agencies that allowed this farce to continue.
