Maine’s Highway System Gets You There

Running the length of the state, Interstate 95 is the backbone of the Maine highway system. The Sanford region is served by three limited access high speed exits at Kennebunk Wells/Sanford and York. The Sanford Municipal Airport and its surrounding commercial and industrial area in South Sanford is only 7.5 miles from the interstate. US 1 runs parallel to I 95 to the east and is the major connecting artery for all of the York County’s coastal communities. Well-maintained state roads complete the road network, providing reliable and safe transportation throughout the region.

There are more than 7,000 licensed carriers providing interstate overland service to points in New England and the Atlantic seaboard. There are over 450 trucking firms that provide service within the state of Maine.

All of Maine, including Sanford and major cities such as Portland, Lewiston, and Bangor, is congestion-free. Business in Maine is not slowed down by traffic jams. Moreover, the I 95 corridor extending through New Hampshire to the confluence of Boston’s Route 128 is remarkably free of the traffic congestion that plagues so many areas in the Northeast. From Maine to Boston’s northern suburbs one mile can be reliably covered in one minute or less.

Maine has a 20-year maintenance and improvement plan to keep the highways safe and efficient.
