12.16.2015: The MaineDOT may have shown their hand on the future of up to 30 more bridges in rural Maine at a time when the MaineDOT can’t even afford to maintain the roads and bridges we already have. They bemoan an annual $70 million in unmet bridge needs while vigorously promoting an expenditure of $61 million on an alternative (2B-2) that only met 20% (1 of 5) of purpose and needs in Apr 2009. 2B-2 was given the appearance of meeting purpose and needs by Dec 2010 by changing the study to make 2B-2 fit!! Note their use of: “inconvenience and angst”. They just don’t get it…

3/4/2015: WLBZ news report “Maine DOT says it needs extra $70M a year for bridges.” Note that: “The MDOT report says there are more than 770 bridges in Maine that are more than 70 years old and need major repair or replacement.” And, the I-395/Route 9 Transportation Study keeps moving on… Should we spend $61 million on a deficient 2B-2 alternative or spend that $61 million rebuilding bridges that are in need of dire repair?

2/23/2015: WABI TV reports on a $26 million shortfall in federal transportation funds for a 5 year period ending in 2013.  And once again, one must ask: what is this strange fixation that the MaineDOT has with 2B-2? “…Maine needs an additional $119 million a year just to maintain the transportation system’s basic needs.” This just makes me want to scream!
