Lawmakers last week approved putting a $105 million transportation bond proposal on the November ballot. The proposal calls for $80 million to be spent on roads and bridges, $20 million on multimodal transportation and $5 million on culvert upgrades. The American Society of Civil Engineers' 2016 infrastructure report card gave Maine an overall C- grade — reporting that of the state's 3,714 bridges 58% are more than 50 years old and 15% are structurally deficient. It also reported that Maine has a projected $68 million annual funding gap for its roads. So we're curious:
Do you believe the $105 million transportation bond is enough to improve Maine's infrastructure grade?
