As a member of the House Transportation Committee, I get some data, such as the following. It is not detailed as to what or where these jobs are, but it does suggest that jobs are coming to Maine on infrastructure projects. I am a big proponent of infrastructure projects, not just bridge and road repairs, but also new construction projects throughout the state.
MaineDOT Bid Information: In the past two weeks, Maine DOT has opened 25 bids on six projects with a total construction value of $26,701,766. National estimates indicate these contracts will provide direct jobs for 347 people. Since the beginning of 2021, the department has opened 61 bids on 16 projects with a total construction value of $44,166,740. National estimates indicate these contracts will provide direct jobs for 574 persons.
