About Androscoggin County

Centrally located, Androscoggin County is less than one hour from the seacoast, the mountains, Portland, and the state capital of Augusta. A community of festivals and events, it is home to the Liberty Festival, Moxie Festival, Festival FrancoFun, and the renowned Great Falls Balloon Festival.

Androscoggin County is the hub of most major highways in the state. Interstate access to the area is provided via Exits 75, 80, and 86 off the Maine Turnpike. The area is also served by an extraordinarily well-equipped general aviation airport in Auburn and by two of the state’s major rail lines — Maine Intermodal Transportation and Guilford Railways. Maine Intermodal Transportation operates the intermodal transportation facility in Auburn, making Auburn the largest freight port in Maine with both direct service to Canada and connecting service to Chicago, Mexico, and Vancouver. Freight originating in Auburn ultimately ends up in the Far East. Plans are currently under way to develop passenger rail service to the Twin Cities, with an Amtrak connection to Boston and Montreal.
