Worst Road winner proves bad Maine roads can be painful
Carol Kelley of Waldo is the winner of the second annual “Worst Road in Maine” contest, announced Maine Better Transportation Association (MBTA) President Randy Mace.
Mace said that Kelley’s entry – Routes 131, 137 and 141 in Waldo County – and the words of her disabled son, Michael, made the judges take note. “Her son, she wrote, has a spinal rod and his shouts of pain when she hits a rough patch are her ‘gauge’ for road conditions,” said Mace, announcing the contest winners and runners up. “The Kelley family’s story is a powerful one and a reminder of just how much bad roads affect the lives of many Mainers.”
