Southern Maine Hotspots
These high traffic, important local roads are in bad shape, present safety concerns and in need of considerable investment.
Major Highway deficiencies :
- Priority 1 sections of Route 302 – Bridgton, Route 1- Ogunquit and Biddeford, Route 202 – Sanford and Routes 4/202 – Alfred
- Priority 2 sections of Routes 109 in Acton approaching the New Hampshire border, 114 west of Sebago Lake and 236 north of Route 4 in Berwick.
- Priority 3 portions of Routes 4, 5, 9, 22, 26, 35, 91, 99, 115, 117, 136, 237 and River Road (Westbrook-Windham).
- Ogunquit, Biddeford, Saco, Scarborough and Cumberland seek improved Interstate access
- Sanford and Gorham seek Turnpike connectors to ease congestion and improve safety
- Capacity and safety concerns remain on I-295 between Brunswick and Portland
- Safety and operational concerns on overused or outdated interchanges throughout the region.
Highway corridors, bridges and high crash locations we need to fix
Deficient /obsolete bridge – usually an aging bridge in need of repair or reconstruction
High crash location – an intersection or stretch of road with unacceptable accident rates
