Overnight Traffic Stops Scheduled for New Gloucester Toll Plaza

Intermittent 20-minute stops needed for overhead sign placement

PORTLAND, Maine – Crews continue to make final preparations for the April 1 opening of the new E-ZPass highway speed toll plaza at mile 67 in New Gloucester. Maine State Police Troop G will conduct nightly intermittent 20-minute traffic stops to allow overhead sign placement on approach to the newly designed toll plaza and travel lanes without jeopardizing worker or motorist safety.
 
As work is performed next week, drivers should expect the following restrictions:
 
Monday, March 18:

  • Trooper assisted traffic stops of up to 20 minutes will be conducted between 10pm and 5am at mile marker 65 for motorists traveling northbound.
Tuesday, March 19:
  • Trooper assisted traffic stops of up to 20 minutes will be conducted between 10pm and 5am at mile marker 65 for motorists traveling northbound. Southbound traffic stops at mile 69 are also possible should crews finish northbound sign placement.
Wednesday & Thursday, March 20 & 21:
  • Trooper assisted traffic stops of up to 20 minutes will be conducted between 10pm and 5am at mile marker 69 for motorists traveling southbound.
 
Drivers are encouraged to adjust their travel schedules in order to avoid the traffic stops during those hours or allow extra travel time to reach their destination. The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. Please proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
 
The Maine Turnpike works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
