Grant Success: City Connectivity Project in Maine

Bluejay is proud to have written a $25 million U.S. Department of Transportation Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant program application to fund numerous transportation-related connectivity improvements in the East Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine.

The project includes constructing new and improving existing active transportation and roadway infrastructure. Improvements will strengthen bicycle and pedestrian connections and multimodal roadway safety to promote active transportation and provide safer access from this neighborhood to points of interest throughout the city including a future graduate campus. The Project will also restore residents’ access to a section of Maine’s coastline that has been inaccessible for more than a century due to a manufacturing site and the midcentury construction of Interstate 295 which bisected the neighborhood.

Congratulations to Maine Department of Transportation, the Initiative for Digital Engineering and Life Sciences (IDEALS), the City of Portland, and the Roux Institute at Northeastern University for this transformational project funding!

To date, Bluejay has won more than $30 million in state and federal grants for clients supporting numerous infrastructure projects for urban connectivity, emissions reductions, railroads, roads, bridges, ports, and more. Learn more about our grant services and success.

The RAISE Grant Program is one of several federal infrastructure-related grant programs, many of which were created and funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). The BIL provides $550 billion of Federal investments in infrastructure through fiscal year 2026.
