Maine Turnpike Authority, a co-sponsor of the Annual Chamber Awards,
was established by the Maine Legislature as an independent state agency
in 1941 and charged with the task of creating a user fee highway that,
in the six decades since, has become the lifeline of Maine’s economy.
The initial 45-mile length of the Maine Turnpike from Kittery to
Portland was completed in 1947. At the conclusion of 2009, the Maine
Turnpike, which is now 109 miles in length, included 65 miles of divided
four-lane and 44 miles of divided six-lane highway, 176 bridges and 19
interchanges, 19 toll plazas, seven maintenance facilities, five service
plazas and an administrative building that consolidated operations of
the E-ZPass customer service center and the Troop G state police
headquarters. The Maine Turnpike continues to serve as the state’s most
important artery, handling more than 209,000 vehicle transactions daily
and a total of more than 76.6 million vehicle transactions in 2008.

Another co-sponsor of the Annual Chamber Awards is Central Maine Power
Company, a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, Maine’s largest electricity
transmission and distribution utility. The company delivers about 9
