State Routes in Maine

SR 121 SR 123

State Route 122 is part of Maine's system of numbered state highways, located in the southern part of the state. The short highway runs for 5.11 miles (8.22 km) and connects State Route 26 in Poland to U.S. Route 202, State Route 4 and State Route 100 in Auburn.

Route description[edit]

SR 122 begins at an intersection with SR 26 just south of Poland Spring. The route heads east, past the southern edge of Range Ponds State Park and the Poland Spring Resort, before entering the town of New Gloucester in Cumberland County. SR 122 passes through the northern edge of the town before re-entering Oxford County and the city of Auburn. SR 122 passes under the Maine Turnpike without an interchange, and continues east to end at Danville Junction southwest of the city. Access to the Turnpike is available via the nearby exit 75 interchange with US 202/SR 4/SR 100.

History[edit]

Despite being one of the shortest routes in the state, SR 122 has retained its routing since its designation in 1925. The only change that has ever occurred was the overlapping of US 202 and SR 4 over SR 100, where SR 122 has always had its eastern terminus.
