Western 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 Routes 2 in Carthage-Dixfield, 4 in Jay and 302 in Fryeburg
- Priority 2 sections of Routes 4 in Phillips-Madrid, 27 to the north and south of the Kingfield downtown and 26 just north of the Paris downtown and in Greenwood

- 53 Structurally Deficient Oxford County bridges, the highest count by far of any Maine county
- Lack of climbing and passing lanes on high priority corridors
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
