The 2020-2022 Maine Department of Transportation work plan allocates more than $4.7 million to projects in Benton, China, Winslow and Vassalboro, and Rep. Tim Theriault of China said in a press release Thursday that the largest portion of the work is a $3 million paving project from China to Winslow.
Slated for 2020, that project will begin at Route 202 in China, extend 6.14 miles west on Route 137 to Winslow and then north 1.04 miles to Route 201.
Other projects this year include large culvert improvements located less than a half-mile from the intersection of Pond Road in China for $60,000; culvert replacements on the Webber Pond Road, Bog Road, Stanley Hill Road and Neck Road in China and Vassalboro for $42,000; and $300,000 of highway rehabilitation from Village Street in China to Gray Road in Vassalboro to Timber Oaks Drive in Winslow.
Light capital paving in China and Vassalboro will begin near Route 32 and extend east 6.21 miles for $249,000 in 2021.
Work on the River Road Bridge in Benton and the Hinckley Road Bridge in Clinton will receive a $1.1 million allocation. This year, the aluminum bridge rail on both bridges will be replaced with a galvanized steel rail. Next year painting and strengthening work will be done on the Interstate 95 River Road Bridges northbound and southbound in Benton.
Theriault, who represents Legislative District 79, which includes Albion and Unity Township in addition to part of Benton and China, said in the release Thursday, “I am pleased to see several MDOT projects scheduled for our area, because our roads really need attention.”
MDOT’s work plan for the next three years includes 2,051 projects statewide with an estimated value of more than $2.59 billion.
