Overhead sign at the (at the time) CT 2/17 split in Glastonbury, from the June 1956 Highway Department "Cuts and Fills" newsletter:



This is now CT 17 southbound at the left exit to New London Turnpike eastbound. The Turnpike became SR 582 when CT 2 was relocated in 1964, but is a town road now. There have been rumblings about decreasing the interchange footprint to a diamond to free up some land.

The sign is white on a blue background; letters and numbers are porcelainized. Later the sign will be illuminated.
