Title: Retrograde_Arterials
Abstract: Retrograde Arterials represents road centerlines along arterials designated "Retrograde Arterials" as part of the MaineDOT's statewide Access Management program. A retrograde arterial is a mobility arterial where the access-related crash-per-mile rate exceeds the 1999 statewide average for arterials of the same posted speed limit. The MaineDOT Access Management program envisions prioritized planning and preservation of Mobility Arterial corridors most at risk of losing capacity, safety, and of decreasing posted speeds, due to increasing development and commuter and visitor pressures. This dataset was created by Maine Department of Transportation using basemap line work and is designed for use in applications within MaineDOT.
Purpose: Retrograde Arterials represents road centerlines along arterials designated "Retrograde Arterials" as part of the MaineDOT's statewide Access Management program.
