Abstract

"City" piece on improvements at Casco Bay Lines that were supposed to be paid for with money that has evaporated. In November, the Maine Department of Transportation informed Portland officials that $2 million slated for the project would not be arriving in 2002, as had been promised, because it has already been spent. The money was originally part of a $22.5 million package earmarked for the first phase of Portland's massive waterfront overhaul scheduled to begin next year. An additional $6 million was expected from the federal government. But Jeffrey Monroe, Portland's transportation director, said it doesn't matter, because the city would be unable to use it until at least 2003 when Casco Bay Lines is scheduled for improvements as part of the master plan for the terminal site.
