(04.07.10) AUGUSTA, ME - Reps. Susan Austin (R-Gray) and Meredith Strang Burgess (R-Cumberland) are pleased that the Maine Department of Transportationís (MDOT) recently-released Maintenance Surface Treatment (MST) plan for 2010 includes a number of projects in the area. MST provides a light surface of pavement which is generally five-eighths of an inch thick over a road, preventing water and ice damage while also providing a smoother driving surface. MST extends the life of a road and helps to prevent more costly repairs later.

Paving is scheduled for North Yarmouth, Gray and Pownal. In total over 15 miles will be paved in the area, including 11.7 miles of State Route 9 starting in North Yarmouth

The Transportation budget, which recently passed the Legislature with bipartisan support, includes funding for 615.8 miles of MST statewide in 2010, meeting the MDOT annual goal. In addition to the State Route 9 project, the MDOT will also be paving:

    · 1.6 miles of State Route 115 in Gray;
    · 2.5 miles of Allen Road, Elmwood Road, Lawrence Road, Leighton Road, and West Pownell Road in Pownal.
