Route 112 improvement

The Maine Department of Transportation announced recently the approval of $7.5 million in highway reconstruction funds for 3.38 miles of Route 112 in Saco and Buxton.

The improvements will be made beginning at approximately a quarter-mile northwesterly of Rocky Hill Road in Saco extending to Route 202 in Buxton.

“The approval of this project is due to the hard work of every one in the Saco and Buxton legislative delegation,” said Sen. Barry Hobbins, D-York County, citing local state Reps. Linda Valentino, D-Saco; Don Pilon, D-Saco; Rob Hunt, D-Buxton; George Hogan, D-Old Orchard Beach and Linda Sanborn, D-Gorham, for their efforts.
