Abstract/ Summary

Maine is dependent on its transportation infrastructure for continued economic strength and growth, particularly on the 22,670 miles of public roads. Maine ranks fourteenth in the nation for the largest number of highway miles traveled annually per capita - 14,912 per year. Maine is highly reliant on its road system because large areas of the State lack transportation alternatives. This means that the current and future condition of the roadways is a major concern. How such a crucial infrastructure will continue to be supported and enhanced financially to meet the growing needs of the State must be considered carefully.
