Feds will send another $31M to replace, repair bridges across Maine

Maine will receive more than $31 million in new federal funds to rehabilitate and replace bridges across the state, addressing a backlog of needed repairs that includes more than 300 spans in poor condition.

The funding, provided through the Federal Highway Administration, is in addition to the $225 million over five years Maine will receive under the bipartisan infrastructure law passed earlier this year, according to U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine.

“Without adequate funding for maintenance, bridges that fall into disrepair become unsafe and subject to eventual closure, resulting in substantial detours and economic harm. By supporting projects that will strengthen bridge reconstruction programs, this funding will help ensure that Mainers can reach their homes and jobs quickly and safely,” Collins said in a statement.

As the ranking member of the Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee, Collins recently co-led a hearing on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s budget request for fiscal year 2023.
