Maine Turnpike widening and modernization ground breaking, South Portland, 2000

Contributed by Maine Turnpike Authority


In November 1997, Maine voters passed a statewide referendum approving the widening of a section of the Maine Turnpike between York and South Portland, the most heavily traveled section of the highway.

On May 9, 2000 the Maine Turnpike Authority broke ground on the widening and modernization program. A five-year, 30 mile, and $135 million project.

Pictured were members of the Maine Turnpike Authority and Governor Angus King, who participated in the ground breaking of the project in South Portland. From left to right: Roger Mallar, Dana Connors, Sam Zaitlin, Governor Angus King, Julian Coles, Lucien Gosselin and Sam Cohen.
