State Route 98 is a short state highway in southeastern Maine. It is a 2.81 miles (4.52 km) connection between the city of Saco and Old Orchard Beach between U.S. Route 1 and State Routes 5 and 9. SR 98 is signed as an east-west highway although its orientation is more northwest-to-southeast.

Route description[edit]

SR 98 begins in Saco at an intersection with US 1. It proceeds southeast into Old Orchard Beach, passing by the Dunegrass Golf Club before meeting its eastern terminus at SR 5 just short of SR 5's southern terminus at SR 9 on the coastline. The Old Orchard Beach Town Hall and Inn are located near the intersection of SR 5 and SR 98.

SR 98 does not intersect any numbered routes between its endpoints.

The route between Saco and Old Orchard Beach was originally designated as Maine State Route 6 in 1937.[2] The Route 6 designation was removed in 1946, when Route 6 was moved to its current routing. Former Route 6 was then designated as SR 98, and the routing has not changed since.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in York County.
