Maine Turnpike Widening, Question 6 (1997)
Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
Do you favor adding one travel lane in each direction to the southern end of the Maine Turnpike, paid for by turnpike tolls, to reduce accidents and congestion?
This legislatively authorized referendum would direct the Maine Turnpike Authority to seek necessary permits for and to construct an additional travel lane for each direction of travel on the Maine Turnpike between Mile 12 (Wells) and Mile 42 (South Portland). The proposed legislation further provides that if the referendum question is not approved by the voters, any further widening of the Maine Turnpike will require the approval of the Legislature.
