The $149.5 million bond package was approved Thursday by the Maine Legislature, which met in special session.
The first question will be for a $14 million dollar bond to repair Maine's armories. It will be followed by a $15.5 million bond to upgrade buildings at Maine's universities, a $100 million bond for roads and bridges and a $4.5 million bond for Maine Maritime Academy. The final bond question will be a $15.5 million bond to expand classrooms and buildings at Maine's community colleges.
There are no other questions on the November statewide ballot.
