MaineDOT 3-Year Work Plan
Gabe Rand, DBE Supportive Services Specialist

The 2024 Edition of MaineDOT’s 3-year Work Plan was released on January 18, 2024 and presents big plans on the horizon. 2,762 different work items totaling $4.74 billion will include capital projects, maintenance and operations activities, funding and work for airports and transit agencies, etc. This plan is a proactive step towards improving infrastructure in the state, as struggles with transportation needs over the past decades have been plaguing our state.
The release of this plan will create a lot contracting opportunities across the state, which is why I want to bring it to your attention. There is a lot of potential to increase contracting and subcontracting with DBE certified businesses of Maine. Keep an eye out for coming projects through 2026! Click here to be taken to MaineDOT’s Three-Year Work Plan.
