History of the Maine Turnpike

In 1941 the Maine State Legislature passed “An Act to Create the Maine Turnpike Authority” creating an independent state agency charged with constructing a highway from “some point at or near Kittery to some point at or near Fort Kent.”   At that time, it was the largest construction project in Maine.

The new toll “superhighway” was the brainchild of Representative Joseph T. Sayward of Kennebunk and a small group of community leaders who decided the time had come to invest in a modern highway that would provide safe and speedy access to the state’s towns and cities.

Up to this point, Route 1, which follows Maine’s coast, was the main road between Kittery and Portland and was becoming extremely congested. Some said it would take the better part of a day to travel between the two cities.
