Pres. Jackson testifies in favor of legislation looking to connect I-95 to the St. John Valley

The state made a promise to connect the state from Kittery to Fort Kent, uniting the northern and southern parts of the state with the Maine highway system. Decades later, that promise remains unfulfilled today with I-95 stopping in Houlton, about 100 miles or two hours short of its planned destination,” said President Jackson. “After all these years, the people, businesses and communities in northern and central Aroostook County are the ones who continue to pay the price for this unfinished project.
