Topsham Park And Ride Lot To Close

The Topsham Park and Ride lot, located in the Topsham Fair Mall off Route 196 and I-295, is scheduled to close on July 15.

MaineDOT previously leased parking space from the Village Candle Company at the mall in order to provide parking spaces for the Topsham Park and Ride lot. The new tenant in the Topsham Fair Mall opted not to renew the parking lease.

MaineDOT has been working with the town of Topsham, GoMaine, and area businesses in order to find a replacement lot, but currently, a new location for the Topsham Park and Ride has not been secured.

MaineDOT suggests that commuters looking to utilize Park and Ride lots in the I-295 area should use the Park and Ride lot at Exit 37 in Bowdoinham, six miles north of the Topsham lot; or utilize the two Park and Ride lots at Exit 20 in Freeport, 11 miles south of the Topsham lot until a new Park and Ride lot is created.
