Route descriptionEdit

SR 129 begins at Middle Road in South Bristol and heads north towards Bristol, where it connects with SR 130 another "dead-end" route which runs to Pemaquid Point at the southern tip of Bristol. SR 129 and SR 130 are cosigned into Damariscotta where the highway intersects with US 1 Business. Both routes terminate at this intersection.

HistoryEdit

As it was first designated in 1925, SR 129 extended south all the way to the tip of South Bristol at the intersection with Shipley Road. In 2004, the route was truncated to the intersection with Middle Road, which remains its southern terminus. No other major changes have been made to the route, except for the co-signing of SR 130 along its northern segment.

Major intersectionsEdit

The entire route is in Lincoln County.
