Waldo — First Selectman Kathy Littlefield told The Republican Journal April 23 that Peter Coughlan, director of the Maine Department of Transportation Community Services Division, had visited "a long time ago" to look at the dirt roads, including Bonne Terre Road, which had ruts up to 3 feet deep earlier this spring.

However, with drier weather, Waldo's unpaved roads have been graded and are "as good as anybody's dirt road" now. Littlefield said the town must now come up with a plan for the roads.

Reached by phone April 26, Coughlan said, "I looked at it (Bonne Terre Road) and told her (Littlefield) what I saw," adding that he agreed with the town's plan to add more stone to the road and wait for it to dry out. He also mentioned that the town planned to hire an engineer to assess the road.
