Stay Off The Roads – Maine Turnpike Officials Asking Drivers to ‘Avoid All Unnecessary Travel’

Maximum speed limits have been lowered to 45 miles-per-hour at the request of Maine State Police Troop G.

“The Maine Turnpike Authority has a 65-year history of providing unparalleled performance in keeping the Pike clear of snow and ice,” said Public Relations Manager Dan Morin. “It’s important to keep in mind, however, that despite our best efforts, it is not always possible for pavement to be completely clear.”

“Travel and road conditions change rapidly, and drivers are in the best position to perceive poor conditions and adjust their driving accordingly by slowing speeds and keeping a safe distance from others,” added Morin. “If you’re unsure about driving during a snowstorm, then don’t.”

Turnpike travelers who must travel can get up-to-date travel alerts and delay information by visiting MaineTurnpike.com, calling 1-800-675-PIKE (7453) and by following the Maine Turnpike on social media through Twitter and Facebook. Twelve web cameras which deliver snapshots updated every sixty seconds are also available for viewing on the Turnpike’s website, weather permitting.

Maine Turnpike maintenance crews are responsible for 665 lane miles of highway, 23 interchanges and 5 service areas from the state line in Kittery to the end of the Turnpike at Exit 109 in Augusta.
