Map and Directions
 

The Franco-American Heritage Center is located at 46 Cedar Street in Lewiston, at the intersection of Cedar Street and Oxford Street.

FROM PORTLAND-NORTH (Falmouth, Cumberland, Yarmouth, Freeport): Go north on I-295 and get off the highway at Exit 22 (Freeport-Durham). Bear right off the exit ramp onto Mallet Drive, and bear right again 100 yards after the overpass onto Route 136, also known as Durham Road. Continue 17.6 miles until you reach a “T” intersection with Broad Street in Auburn (Dunkin Donuts will be on your left, the green Bernard Lown Peace Bridge will be to your right). Take a right and go over the bridge. You are now on Cedar Street in Lewiston, and the Franco Center is the second building on the left after the bridge.

FROM PORTLAND-SOUTH & WEST (Scarborough, Westbrook, Gorham, etc.): Take the Maine Turnpike (I-95) and travel north to Exit 80 (Lewiston). At the end of the exit ramp, turn left onto the Alfred A. Plourde Parkway, heading toward Route 196 (Lisbon Street). Go about three-tenths of a mile, cross the overpass that traverses Route 196 (Lisbon Street) and take the first right after the overpass, which will put you onto a circular on-ramp leading to Route 196 West (Lisbon Street). Go about 1.9 miles on Route 196 (Lisbon Street), and be prepared to turn left onto Cedar Street after you pass Oxford Networks and Kaplan University (in that order) on your left. Go through two traffic lights and the Franco Center will be on your right.

FROM BATH-BRUNSWICK and MID-COAST MAINE: Take Route 1 South through Brunswick to I-295. Get on I-295 North and proceed approximately 3 miles to Exit 31 (Topsham). At the end of the off-ramp, turn left onto Route 196 West and drive 16.5 miles through the towns of Lisbon and Lisbon Falls and into Lewiston’s downtown, where Route 196 is also known as Lisbon Street. Be prepared to turn left onto Cedar Street after you pass Oxford Networks and Kaplan University (in that order) on your left. Go through two traffic lights and the Franco Center will be on your right.

FROM AUGUSTA AND POINTS NORTH: Take the Maine Turnpike (I-95) and travel south to Exit 80 (Lewiston). At the end of the exit ramp, bear right onto the Alfred A. Plourde Parkway, heading toward Route 196 (Lisbon Street). Go about two-tenths of a mile, cross the bridge over Route 196 (Lisbon Street) and take the first right after the overpass, which will put you onto a circular on-ramp leading to Route 196 West (Lisbon Street). Go about 1.9 miles on Route 196 (Lisbon Street), and be prepared to turn left onto Cedar Street after you pass Oxford Networks and Kaplan University (in that order) on your left. Go through two traffic lights and the Franco Center will be on your right.

FROM WESTERN MAINE (Oxford & Franklin Counties): Depending on which is closest to you, take either Route 11/121 or Route 4 into downtown Auburn – both routes eventually intersect with Court Street in Auburn at the CVS Pharmacy. Descending Court Street in Auburn puts you on the Memorial Bridge separating Auburn from Lewiston – cross Memorial Bridge and take the first right immediately after the bridge onto Lincoln Street. Turn right at the second traffic light and the Franco Center will be on your right.
