Overnight Traffic Stops At New Gloucester Toll Plaza

 25-minute overnight traffic stops Monday, October 22 through Thursday, October 25.

PORTLAND, Maine – Maine Turnpike motorists will encounter intermittent 25-minute overnight traffic stops in both directions between miles 65 and 69 in New Gloucester starting at 10:00 p.m. through 5:00 a.m., Monday, October 22 through Thursday, October 25, weather permitting. Stoppages will conclude Friday before the morning commute.
The nightly, intermittent traffic stops are needed to accommodate the erection of new overhead signage in preparation for the Turnpike’s new open-road high-speed tolling facility, without jeopardizing motorist or worker safety. The high-speed tolling facility is expected to open by summer 2013.
Motorists should be prepared for significant trip delays or seek alternate travel routes. Message boards will be in place to inform approaching travelers of traffic stops, and Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) broadcasts on 1610 AM will also be used to inform drivers. The Maine Turnpike Authority appreciates motorists’ patience and understanding.
Travel alerts and construction advisories from the Maine Turnpike are available 24/7 on Facebook, Twitter and at
