MaineDOT's Climate Initiative

The Maine Department of Transportation’s Climate Initiative organizes our work to improve the resiliency of our transportation infrastructure against effects of climate change, help reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation, and “lead-by-example” by transitioning to electrification and alternative fuels in our operations. MaineDOT is an active participant in shaping state climate policy through the Maine Climate Council and its Transportation Working Group. The Council’s climate strategies and reports are available on the Maine Climate Council website.
