AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) Maine Gov. John Baldacci said motorists should view road construction delays as a good thing this summer. That’s because they represent jobs.

Baldacci said hundreds of projects included in the state’s two-year work plan will provide a “major injection of money into our economy and more long-term benefits for our state.’’

Baldacci said those projects represent sound investments in the future that, along with belt-tightening, are necessary for the state to emerge from the recession.

The Maine Department of Transportation’s upcoming two-year Work Plan includes $809 million in capital projects. Baldacci said the highway and bridge projects alone can be expected to create or preserve more than 15,600 jobs.
