Maine Department of Transportation 3-Year Workplan Resources
A big factor in whether a bicycle and pedestrian facility (e.g. a paved shoulder, a sidewalk, a bike lane, shared-lane marking, signage, etc) can be brought to your town is whether a state (DOT) construction project is planned for your community in the next three years. The DOT workplan is an important source of information for community groups such as Bike/Ped Committees or Active Community Environment (ACE) Teams that want to advocate for the inclusion of biking and walking facilities in upcoming road construction projects. Before construction begins, there is always time to have conversations and galvanize support for addressing bicycle and pedestrian enhancements as part of these projects.
