TRIP: ‘Growth and Quality of Life in Maine’ report released tomorrow
TRIP, a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC., will release “Growth and Quality of Life in Maine,” at a news conference in Portland, Maine, at 10 EST a.m. on Dec. 15.
The most-needed surface transportation improvements in Maine include 35 projects to build, expand or modernize highways or bridges, five projects to improve rail or public transportation, five maritime or port projects, three multi-modal projects, one aviation project and one project to improve the state’s trail system, according to TRIP.
These improvements would enhance economic development opportunities throughout the state by increasing mobility and freight movement, easing congestion and making Maine an attractive place to live, visit and do business, according to TRIP. Many of these projects cannot be addressed without additional transportation funding, the organization adds.
Check back on our website tomorrow at 10 a.m. EST for a copy of the report.
