"Cover Story" piece on two mega-projects aimed toward "the other Maine" and billed as economic salvation. A four-lane, limited-access highway from Calais to the twin border outposts of Gilead and Coburn Gore has a price tag of $1.3 billion. And an extension of Interstate 95 from Houlton to Fort Kent will cost up to $500 million. Federally funded studies of their feasibility are due next year. There has been nothing like these projects built in Maine in recent decades beside the $1billion-plus natural gas pipeline buried between Woodland and Kittery last year. With details about how these two new north-south and east-west highways will affect Maine, Mainers and the economic relationship between the United States and Canada.
