"The state included in its 1940 program for highway work a mile or more along the main highway to Orono and through the town of Orono. In some sections the grade will be raised considerably and in other sections the grade will be dropped. Throughout the entire stretch the road will be resurfaced even if the grade is'nt changed. All this means that the Hydro must bring its street car roadbed to a level to conform to the grade of the new highway. And that's what's going on at the present time and will continue for possibly two months or more. The Bangor and the Old Town track crews are both working on this job as well as the Old Town line crew."

Features photographs of work being done on the streets of Orono and Old Town.
