Maine Turnpike Authority
Last updated: May 2020

Introduction

The Maine Turnpike Authority was created by private and special law in 1941 as an independent state agency given the authority to construct and operate a turnpike "from a point at or near Kittery in York county to a point at or near Fort Kent in Aroostook county" (P&SL 1941, c. 69). Since then, the Turnpike has been widened and there have been numerous proposals to terminate the Authority, merge its duties and operations with the Department of Transportation, or to create a new agency by combining both entities. Statutes governing it were codified in the early 1980s, and are now located in 23 MRS §1961 et seq. 

This legislative history covers the creation of the Turnpike Authority and amendments to the laws and statutes that govern it. For information about attempts to terminate the Authority, see the law library’s legislative history on this topic.
