KITTERY — Maine is once again advertising that the state is “open for business.”

Almost three months after the “Open for Business” sign was stolen from its position beneath the “Welcome to Maine” sign On Interstate 95 in Kittery, a new sign is in place.

The new sign, installed over the last few days, was paid for with donations from members of Maine’s construction industry.

The original “Open for Business” sign along Interstate 95 in York County, which was installed in March as a symbol of Gov. Paul LePage’s commitment to job creation, was stolen over Memorial Day weekend.

Ted Johnston, a lobbyist for the Maine Aggregate Association, says none of the donations were large. He told the Bangor Daily News he didn’t know how much the new sign cost.
