Pike Wins I-295 Job


A cheer went up when Pike learned that the state of
Maine had awarded it the $35 million contract to rebuild Interstate 295's
northbound lanes from Brunswick to Gardiner--the mirror image of the project the
company completed last summer on the southbound side of the highway. "This gives
us a lot of optimism--it's a really great thing," said Jonathan Olson, Pike's
regional manager. Pike got the news Wednesday; Gov. John Baldacci officially
announced it Thursday. The I-295 reconstruction is the state's top highway
priority, and the first major initiative to be funded in Maine with federal
stimulus money.
