The Connecticut Turnpike opened in 1958 as a connector between New York and Rhode Island. From the time of its opening, it was signed with these unique circular markers showing the outline of Connecticut. It later became part of Interstates 95 and 395. However, it remained a toll road until 1985. When it became a free road, the circular Turnpike route markers vanished from service. The last one still in active service hung on until approximately 2010…in the Bronx, New York City, of all places!
Our Connecticut Turnpike marker is a revival of the classic circular markers once found along this vital road. Every detail is accurate to the exact state standards used between 1958 and 1985. Original markers like this are very rare to find scrapped; most of them have been recycled into guardrails decades ago. Avoid the bank-breaking perils of low supply and high demand with our faithful replica.
Our replica Connecticut Turnpike marker is flat printed on strong 14-gauge steel. It’s durable enough to survive the elements outdoors, but thanks to its glossy non-reflective finish, it looks great indoors too. It comes in your choice of diameters: 16, 20, 24, and 36 inches. All of them include two convenient holes for easy installation. (Looking for another classic turnpike marker like this one from another state? Or perhaps another classic Connecticut sign?
