Millions of acres of Maine’s beautiful wild country will be ruined if the east-west highway is allowed to happen. Cianbro says it will foot the bill for this insane project. Lets examine this proposal with a little old fashioned common sense. Who will maintain it after it is built? (Taxpayers?) Will Cianbro hire its own law enforcement group to patrol this road? How about fire and rescue coverage? Is each county responsible to provide safety personnel? Is this a Maine State Police jurisdiction?

I think not, because it is a private highway. Is this possibly a way to create jobs for Cianbro, then pass the bill on to the taxpayers? I guess this would not be the first time that politics cost the people. But this time we have a chance to stop it. Please Maine people stop this idiotic proposal. Keep our wild Maine wild.
