State Route 138 (SR 138) is part of Maine's system of numbered state highways, located entirely in Sagadahoc County. It runs from U.S. Route 201 (US 201) in Bowdoin, to Interstate 295 (I-295) while running concurrent with SR 125 for one mile (1.6 km). It then reaches SR 197 in Richmond, and ends at the junction with US 201 in Richmond.

Route description

SR 138 begins at an intersection with US 201 in Bowdoin. It heads east towards I-295, and SR 125 in Bowdoinham, where the two state routes run concurrent for one mile (1.6 km). After splitting from SR 125 in Bowdoinham, SR 138 heads north through Richmond, where it intersects SR 197 and terminates at US 201 in Richmond.


Until 1937, this highway was a part of US 201 and its predecessors. With the construction of the bypass of Bowdoinham,[2] this route was rerouted over it, and the old alignment became SR 201. Between 1948 and 1956, the highway was renumbered to SR 138.
