Notes and History

ME 165 as originally designated in 1925 ran between Easton Center at NEI 24 (later US 1 and now US 1A) and Van Buren, again at NEI 24 (now US 1). After the designation of the Mars Hill-Caribou incarnation of US 1A in 1940 (see US 1A), ME 165 was truncated to Fort Fairfield at the corner of High St, Limestone Rd and Main St (now the junction of ME 161, ME 167 and US 1A). This routing persisted until 1983 when US 1A was routed into Van Buren using the rest of ME 165's alignment, rendering it obsolete and causing it to be decommissioned.

ME 165 was part of the original alternate routing for the Pine Tree Trail and continues as part of the routing, now as US 1A.

NAVTEQ has, for some reason, resurrected the route between Fort Fairfield and Van Buren even though it has been dead for decades. It appears co-signed with US 1A.

See US 1A for other realignments related to this routing.
