Abstract

"Focus on Northern Maine region" piece by Nate Berry, president of Leaders Encouraging Aroostook Development (LEAD), in Caribou. LEAD was instrumental in identifying the need for a new north-south highway that would connect the St. John Valley to I-95, reducing the time and cost of travel required to do business. It is estimated that a new 110-mile corridor would pay for itself in three years. Money for the first two sections has been secured and in the bank for years, and there is no organized opposition in Aroostook County to the project. Gov. John Baldacci has said he wants to see the project started before he leaves office.
