Most of Aroostook is considerably north or west of any interstate. In fact, almost the entire western part of the region has no state or federal highway running through it. This part of The County is the most remote portion of New England, and travelers should take care that very few towns and services will be available on the roads between Eastern Aroostook and Quebec.
To reach Aroostook from all points south and west, take I-95 north into Southern Aroostook, and continue on Maine Route 11 or U.S. Route 1 north (these are the only two highways that travel north from I-95 into Aroostook.
From Canada, Take U.S. 1 south from Fort Kent (which will travel through Aroostook), or Main State Route 11.
I-95 reaches its Northern tip on the Canadian border at Houlton. Other Aroostook locations along I-95 are Smyrna, Oakfield, Golden Ridge, Island Falls, and Molunkus.
Use U.S. Route 1 to reach Littleton, Monticello, Mars Hill, Presque Isle, Fort Fairfield, Caribou, Van Buren, Madawaska and Fort Kent.
Use Maine Route 11 to reach Ashland, Portage, Winterville, Eagle Lake and Fort Kent.
The Allagash Waterway is best reached via private roads that are open to the public. There is no major road that goes further west beyond the town of Allagash, which is State Route 161.
