(January 25, 2023) — The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is announcing that exit numbering will be revised on Route 9 both Northbound and Southbound from Old Saybrook to Farmington beginning on January 23, 2023, weather permitting.
These projects consist of the exit renumbering and replacement of highway signs along the Route 9 corridor that have reached or exceeded their useful life. The exits are being renumbered to mileage-based numbering to conform to Federal standards and is part of a multi-year effort on all of the State’s highways. Motorists can expect to see both old and new exit numbers displayed throughout the transition for a few days while work progresses. To expedite the transition this work will be performed by two state contractors simultaneously. Variable message signs will be advising motorists in the area for the week prior to work. The work is anticipated to be completed within three weeks.
