Notes and History

Maine's only official Truck routing is a bit of a mystery; it does not appear in route logs until the 1965 edition, meaning it was likely commissioned in 1964 (although it may have existed prior unofficially). Running between ME 164 and ME 228 proper in Washburn, it was only about 0.6 miles long and thus ensured it would not appear on any regional map. It is unclear when it was decommissioned (it still appears on the last publicly published route log in 1967, but does not appear on the 1966/8 general atlas [1966 survey but 1968 highway data]), or if Truck 228 was incorporated into ME 228 proper or if the highway was upgraded and the truck routing simply abandoned. If the latter, one suspect that meets the termini and would be about the right length is Victoria St. T is not an official MDOT suffix but it is not known if it was even bannered with any special endorsement or, as is typical, signed as simply "TO 228."
