AUGUSTA — The Maine Better Transportation Association wants some help in naming the “Worst Road in Maine.”

The contest is held each year in April at a time when potholes pop up across the state, and the organization wants to call attention to the impact of potholes and cracked pavement.

President Jim Hanley says the contest allows people to vent their frustration and have some fun while calling attention to the fact that Maine’s roads are in bad shape.

The winner of the contest will receive a grand prize of $296. Washington, D.C.-based TRIP says that’s the amount Mainers pay in extra maintenance and repairs because of bad roads.
