Helpful Info About Connecticut

Thought some of you asking about the great state of CT would find this helpful:

Connecticut, southernmost of the six New England states, is easy to reach. Its capital, Hartford, is about 100 miles from either New York City or Boston.

By Car

Interstate 95 runs along Connecticut's Long Island Sound shoreline, providing a direct link to all points in the state, whether you come from New York City, Boston, or Providence.

Interstate 91 heads north from New Haven (I-95 interchange) through Hartford, connecting with I-90 (Mass. Turnpike) north of Springfield, MA. It continues north through New England to Canada.

Interstate 84 enters Connecticut at Danbury (I-684 interchange) and runs northeast through Hartford to its link with I-90 at Sturbridge, MA. It also interchanges with I-91 at Hartford.

Interstate 395 enters the northeast corner of Connecticut at Thompson and continues south along the eastern border, and through Norwich until it connects with I-95 in Waterford.

The Merritt Parkway (Connecticut 15) links with New York State's Hutchinson River Parkway at Greenwich; it becomes the Wilbur Cross Parkway near Bridgeport and links with I-91 at Meriden.
