Turnpike offering tired travelers free coffee for New Year’s Eve

Turnpike urges late night holiday safety breaks
 


      PORTLAND, Maine –  The Maine Turnpike Authority is encouraging holiday travelers to take break for safety and will treat Turnpike customers to a complimentary cup of coffee New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
 
Many travelers will be traveling very late or very early during the holiday and to help them stay alert, complimentary coffee will be offered at all five Maine Turnpike Service Plazas from 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Turnpike Service Plazas, operated by HMSHost, are located both northbound and southbound at mile 25 in Kennebunk, northbound and southbound at mile 58 in Gray and Cumberland respectively and at mile 102 in West Gardiner. The plazas also offer fuel, food and rest rooms 24 hours a day 7 days a week for travelers on the Maine Turnpike. The plazas in Gray and Cumberland were recently renovated this summer with more hot food choices for traveler’s convenience.
 
Maine State Police Troop G will be actively patrolling the Maine Turnpike to keep drivers and passengers safe throughout the holidays. Turnpike staff also works with state troopers to assist stranded motorists during daytime and overnight hours.
