AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) Contractors and legislative leaders criticized Republican Gov. Paul LePage on June 25 for holding up bonds as the governor shifted the blame on lawmakers’ “excessive 11th-hour” spending and the state’s independent treasurer. Lawmakers returned facing bonds, tax code reform, LePage’s proposal to roll back the voter-approved minimum wage law and a stalemate on the release of funds for publicly financed candidates. Lawmakers began possibly tapping into $141 million in unappropriated surplus funds by passing more than $100 million in spending including voter-approved Medicaid expansion.
Contractors, meanwhile, lined the Statehouse hallways and said the governor is causing uncertainty in the height of Maine’s construction season. LePage didn’t sign paperwork needed to sell transportation bonds as planned. “We should have a foot on the gas pedal, not taking it off,” said CPM Constructors president Paul Koziell. He said it’s “frustrating” as a business owner to have spent the weekend trying to figure out why the governor did not authorize the bond sale as expected, and what the governor will do to make sure the government pays its bills. By that afternoon, the confusion appeared to dissipate. Maine Department of Transportation spokesman Ted Talbot confirmed that the agency has enough cash to keep making timely payments to contractors for at least five see BONDS page 6

USDOT Announces $225M for Boston Green Line Extension United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Secretary Elaine L. Chao was joined by FTA Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Congressman Michael Capuano, Congresswoman Katherine Clark, and state and local officials on June 25 to announce the release of a $225 million federal grant agreement for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Green Line Extension (GLX) light rail project. The grant represents the second installment of funding for the GLX after FTA signed a $996 million Full Funding Grant
Agreement (FFGA) with MBTA for the 4.7mi. light rail line from Cambridge to Medford. “The Green Line Extension project will improve mobility, access to jobs, schools and the quality of life for tens of thousands of passengers in the Boston area,” said Chao. “The Green Line Extension will improve access to education, housing and job opportunities across the entire MTBA system,” said Baker. “Our administration is grateful for the collaboration and support we have received from Secretary Chao and all partners at the federal, state and local level to reach this milestone and begin a project that
will have a transformational impact on this region of the Commonwealth by accommodating riders and spurring economic growth.” “DOT is proud to partner with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and MBTA to extend safe public transportation to the 75,000 residents who live along the Green Line extension, which will spur development and bring added value to the corridor,” said Williams. “The leadership at the state and MBTA should be commended for making the necessary decisions to ensure this project opens on time and within budget.”
The project includes seven new light rail stations, replacement or rehabilitation of eight bridges, and a new pedestrian/bike path. The GLX is expected to generate approximately 40,000 new transit trips a day, improving access to jobs and opportunities in Boston as well as the communities of Somerville and Medford, home to Tufts University. The line is projected to open in January 2022. (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s website at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Contractors Protest LePage Holding Up Bonds in Maine BONDS from page 1
weeks. That means, he said, it appears the state can sell the bonds later. Senate Republican President Mike Thibodeau said the governor seemed interested in selling bonds, and that lawmakers also could consider legislation to give Hayes some authority to release certain bonds herself. House Republican Leader Ken Fredette, meanwhile, said he hopes the bonds will instead be sold in July. Democratic House Speaker Sara Gideon said LePage was jeopardizing jobs, $117 million dollars of state borrowing and the state’s credit and bond ratings. LePage’s spokesman Peter Steele blamed independent state treasurer and gubernatorial candidate Terry Hayes for not rescheduling the bond closing or providing additional time. “The governor wanted to wait until the end of the session, preferably until Veto Day to determine how much excessive spending the Legislature was seeking before going out for the bonds,” Steele said, referring to the day when lawmakers consider the gover-
nor’s vetoes. Hayes provided a June 1 memo initialed by LePage detailing bond offerings planned. The bonds that are held up include $8 million for port, harbor and marine transport upgrades; $25 million for commercialization and research and development; and $80 million for in-progress highway and bridge projects. Hayes said the governor asked Hayes to delay the bond offerings until the Legislature finished its work. But Hayes said she could only give LePage an extra 24 hours to formally sign the bonds. Hayes warned that LePage’s tactics means it could cost taxpayers more to sell the bonds later due to rising interest rates and the uncertainty. Hayes said her office began returning money deposits from interested bidders. “How stable is the Maine state government if we can’t follow through on our purchase and sale agreement?” she asked.

Water Street Bridge Replacement Officials Release Details Project Begins in Saugus, Wakefield About Wind Farm Project Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and the Department of Public Works announced that construction began June 25 to replace the Water Street Bridge to build a new, safer and more reliable bridge on Route 129 at the Saugus/Wakefield border. The existing 100-year-old granite pillar bridge will be swapped for a new, 12-ft. by 5-ft. reinforced concrete boxed culvert. New guardrails will be installed, and the area will be freshly paved. Last year, the town was awarded a $500,000 grant through the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s Municipal Small Bridge Program to replace the existing 15-ft. bridge, which is more than 100 years old and in poor condition. The town manager accepted the award during a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House, where he was joined by Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack, Highway Administrator Thomas Tinlin, and other municipal award recipients. The Municipal Small Bridge Program allows this bridge project to be funded entirely through the grant, saving the taxpayers of Saugus $500,000 in projected engineering design and construction costs.
“I would like to thank Lt. Governor Polito, MassDOT Secretary and CEO Pollack, Highway Administrator Tinlin, and the Department of Transportation for their support and investment in the Town of Saugus and its infrastructure,” said Crabtree. “The Water Street Bridge is frequently used each day for emergency, essential, and commercial and industrial services. Important infrastructure repairs such as this are critical for the safety and convenience of the community.” Construction began the week of June 25, 2018. The majority of the project work will take place Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Parking will be restricted in work areas during this construction project. One lane of traffic will be open at the project location for most of the duration of the project. Some work will be completed on weekends, during which time the roadway will be temporarily closed and traffic will be rerouted. This work is scheduled to be completed July 13-16, and July 20-23, weather depending. (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s website at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Rhode Island officials joined developer Deepwater Wind in providing some details about the “Revolution Wind” project at the Port of Providence. The $250 million offshore wind farm will bring power to tens of thousands of homes as it makes Rhode Island a wind industry leader, WPRI reported. Deepwater Wind, which was chosen for the project the week of May 21, said it plans to invest the $250 million required for the project itself and will not take any state tax incentives or credits, WPRI reported. When the project is complete, state residents will be able to purchase power from the wind farm via National Grid. The wind farm is expected to provide power for more than 200,000 Rhode Island homes. The Specs According to the company, the wind farm will be located in federal waters between Martha’s Vineyard and Block Island, and will span 10 times larger than the one on Block Island. Up to 50 wind turbines will populate the site; their components will be built both in and out of Rhode Island, according to Deepwater Wind CEO Jeff Grybowski. The project is expected to create more than 800 construction jobs, officials said. Construction is expected to begin in 2020, with a completion date of 2023, WPRI reported.

Slew of Problems Spur Route 100 Rehabilitation in Vt. PAVEMENT from page 1
Deteriorated Pavement “The condition of the pavement has deteriorated to a ‘very poor’ level. The decision was made to address the pavement condition and the longevity of the road by removing the concrete slabs below. The resulting rehabilitated road is forecasted to last 20-plus years without major reconstruction, rather than seven to 10 years, which is typically associated with a functional overlay.” Bogaczyk said the length of the project was riddled with lateral reflective cracking from underlying concrete slabs in various stages of disrepair, as well as potholes and rutting from years of freeze/thaw patterns and heavy traffic loading. The average annual daily traffic of the route ranges from approximately 9,000 to 15,000 vehicles. “Route 100 is a very busy route, taking traffic from the interstate exit in Waterbury north to the tourist destination of Stowe. “In addition to the tourist traffic loads, there are many commuters along this route who have minimal other options to get to the interstate.” Bogaczyk said most of the ongoing construction is being performed during the off-hours. “Traffic patterns were evaluated over the course of a 24-hour The Route 100 project addresses the poor pavement condition along the corridor, due to underlying concrete slabs that have caused reflective period, and it was found that there VTrans photo cracking into the top courses. was a major decrease in traffic in the overnight hours.

CEG Main equipment being used on the job includes excavators, loaders, a grader, pavers, rollers and various trucks. Gravel and hot mix pavement are among the required materials. According to Bogaczyk, the concrete slab removal will take the biggest chunk of time, as the slabs need to be excavated and broken down into smaller pieces before being transported to approved waste sites. Milling and paving operations surrounding the concrete slab removal have been able to get ahead and catch up, respectively, to the slab removal work. Traffic during construction hours has been delayed slightly, as there has been alternating one-way traffic during those periods. During the day time/non-construction times, traffic has had to slow down as the pavement has been removed in short stretches along the VTrans photo route, forcing vehicles to travel on gravel During construction, work areas must be lit to a minimum of 10 ft.-candles to mimic daytime conditions, and other work zone, surfaces. but non-active work areas are lit to a minimum of 5 ft.-candles.
