State Routes in Maine

SR 111 SR 113

State Route 112 is part of Maine's system of numbered state highways, running from U.S. Route 1 in Saco to Route 114 in Gorham.

From its southern terminus in Saco, Route 112 runs north, concurrent with Route 5 for 0.4 miles. Route 112 then continues into Buxton where it eventually intersects with U.S. Route 202 and Route 4. The route then continues north, intersecting Route 4A, and later intersecting Route 22 in Buxton. From there, the route continues on into Gorham to the junction of Route 25 in Gorham. Route 112 runs concurrently with Route 25 for a short distance, eventually turning off at a rotary. The route then crosses US-202 and SR-4 again, this time in Gorham, and finally ends at Route 114.

History[edit]

From the route's formation until 1937, Route 112 had its northern terminus at Route 4A, then known as Route 111.[1]

In 2008, Route 112 had its northern terminus changed again. Prior to 2008, the northern terminus for the route was Route 25 in Gorham. The route was extended as the outcome of a bypass project in Gorham. It was extended from Route 25 to Route 114, as a bypass route to allow traffic to avoid the intersection of Routes US-202/SR-4/25 and 114.[2]
