Notes and History

Not designated until 1959, ME 69 is a weird oblique route through the southern central coast from Winterport to Pittsfield designated completely on new routing except for its useless multiplex with ME 139 in Winterport. Leaving Winterport, it deviates from ME 139 and then passes through Carmel (partially with US 2), then Plymouth and Detroit, and finally into Pittsfield. It is little modified from its initial signage; the only significant realignment was its junction with I-95 and ME 143 at exit 167 near Etna, where a stub alignment can be seen of the old road bed "crossing" the Interstate.

Apparently, ME 69 has a bad reputation [.pdf] with truckers in winter (not like any Maine road would be a picnic in January, however).
