State Route 16 is a numbered state highway in Maine, United States. SR-16 runs from the New Hampshire state line (signed as NH-16) at Wentworth's Junction (near Lake Aziscohos) in the west to Orono at the eastern terminus. State Route 16 runs a total of 190 miles (310 km), passing mostly through rural areas, with the largest population center at its eastern terminus in Orono at I-95.
