Notes and History

ME 127 as originally designated in 1925 ran between Gardiner near Randolph at NEI 20 (now US 201) and Wiscasset at NEI 1 (now US 1), including the Kennebec River crossing to Gardiner. After the Maine Great Renumbering, this alignment became part of new route ME 27 and ME 127 was moved to a new routing that branched off its old one south through Dresden and Woolwich to Georgetown -- the first in a string of consecutively numbered present-day south coast "dead-end" routes, some from before the Maine Great Renumbering and some after. In 1939, this was extended out to Five Islands, terminating apparently at the shoreline (or possibly at the corner of Old Schoolhouse Rd and 5 Islands Rd; it is not clear exactly). The route was retracted back to the intersection of 5 Islands Rd and Seguinland Rd, probably its historic terminus, around 2003-4 although it seems likely that signage past that point is still up.

Previously ME 127 crossed to Arrowsic (south of Woolwich and US 1) on an older crossing which now appears to be destroyed; the approaches seem to be Old Arrowsic Rd and Preble Point Rd. The nearby railroad crossing is dated 1949 and the Sasonoa River crossing itself is dated 1950, making it the likely date of realignment. It is unclear if Old Stage Rd north of Arrowsic was also bypassed by the current routing.
