Why an Action Plan for Route 236?

Southern Maine is growing faster than any other region in the State, and nowhere are the effects of growth more readily apparent then on our highways. Geographically, Route 236 communities are on Maine's frontline, so to speak, facing these new growth challenges. While growth has been steady and gradual for a long time now, its cumulative effect has reached new thresholds that are seriously degrading our safety and mobility. Over the past twenty years traffic volumes on Route 236 have more than doubled--up to 18,000 Average Annual Daily Traffic in some locations. At present, there are currently 9 different Maine DOT-designated "High Crash Locations" on the 10 mile stretch from downtown South Berwick to the Kittery Traffic Circle.
