The bill features several proposals from both democrats and republicans, that would help come up with $75 million to put towards the projects.
Maine DOT estimates that it costs around $160 million to maintain these structures each year.
While this proposal wouldn't completely cover the cost, it's at least a start.
“We don't drive on republican roads or democratic bridges. We drive on Maine roads and Maine bridges. So we've got to come up with a bipartisan solution to figure out how we're going to fix our roads and bridges,” said Rep. Andrew McLean of Gorham.
Representative McLean says that officials on both sides of the aisle agree this is a problem that needs to be fixed.
However, their ideas on how to do so differ.
McLean says he hopes they are able to reach a solution this year.
