The Utility Task Force was formed to facilitate communication between MaineDOT and the numerous utilities throughout the state and to provide a forum for addressing issues which affect utilities within the state right-of-way. Meetings are held one to two times per year and subcommittees, which address specific issues, are occasionally formed. Utility Task Force membership is open to any utility representative who would like to take part in our discussions.
