Maine DOT Assisting in Power Restoration
December 12, 2008
AUGUSTA, MAINE -- Crews from MaineDOT are assisting Central Maine Power in clearing downed trees and opening roads throughout affected areas of the State. MaineDOT has assigned state bridge and sign crews to support CMP in their efforts to restore power after Governor Baldacci had requested that state agencies assist CMP if able.
MaineDOT Road crews continue to keep roads clear and free of ice. Road crews are pushing back snow banks and opening drainage systems, as well as removing trees across roads. Road crews have worked through the night to keep roads open during the storm, and will continue to keep roads clear of ice and downed trees.
While temperatures have moderated currently, temperatures are expected to fall later today, which will lead to icing of the states roadways.
MaineDOT is asking motorists to limit their travel, and if you must travel, please follow these tips:
