Why Does MDOT Have Contempt for Portland?

Rights of Way reports on Maine Department of Transportation's insistence on an outdated plan that continues to block Back Cove from Marginal Way and the new Bayside Trail.
This sidewalk would not have any lighting. It would be a narrow, dark alley squeezed next to speeding freeway traffic. Remember, they're calling this a "safety improvement".

MDOT is also refusing to build any crosswalks between the Park and Ride lot and adjacent sidewalks on the other side of Franklin Street and Marginal Way.
