The Maine Turnpike Authority receives no state or federal funds to pay for highw
The Maine Turnpike Authority receives no state or federal funds to pay for highway maintenance or improvements, and turnpike service plazas help pay those costs. In 2002, the MTA decided to spend up to $26 million to overhaul its six plazas, three of which are completed. Maryland-based HMSHost operates the turnpike concessions for the MTA, and C.N. Brown of South Paris manages fuel sales. The MTA pioneered the payment model and receives the greatest percentage of its vendors' revenues of any turnpike in the country. Revenue is expected to double with the completion of the new plazas.
