About the MTA


The Maine Turnpike Authority is a quasi-state agency created by the Maine Legislature in 1941, to construct, manage and operate the 109-mile toll highway from Kittery to Augusta. Completed in 1947, the Maine Turnpike became the second superhighway built in America—the Pennsylvania Turnpike was the first. Since its inception, the Maine Turnpike has set national standards for the way it is financed, maintained and continually improved.

Mission of the MTA

The Maine Turnpike Authority and its employees will continue to be national leaders in the user fee highway travel and significant contributors to Maine's transportation system. The Authority's primary function is to operate and maintain a toll express highway through its short term and long term capital improvement plans.
