The Maine Department of Transportation released its three-year plan for transportation improvements across the state.

The Jan. 18 report consists of rebuilding roads and bridges, paving, pedestrian safety projects, and marine and airport projects.

MDOT Commissioner Bruce Van Note said in the Jan. 18 report additional federal money will help the state invest in its infrastructure, but the increase “will be largely offset by construction cost inflation fueled by tight labor and material markets.”

“MaineDOT is cautiously optimistic that with the continued help of our federal delegation, grant funding can allow us to make meaningful investments in our iconic New England villages, connecting corridors, modal options that support the people who need them, active transportation, and initiatives that support jobs and the environment including port investments to support a clean energy future,” Van Note stated.

The following are the list of proposed projects for 2022-2024 for Knox County communities:
