Travel directions

I-395 at Griswold.

At Golden Spur, west of New London, I-395 branches off Interstate 95, the highway from New York to Boston. The highway has 2×2 lanes and leads through the wooded countryside of southeastern Connecticut. You pass the town of Norwich, where you cross the SR-2, the highway from Hartford. I-395 then makes a jump east and then north again and is called the Governor John Davis Lodge Turnpike. You regularly pass small towns. East Brooklyn crosses US 6, a major secondary east-west route from Hartford to Providence. The last larger town in Connecticut is Putnam.

At Wilsonville, I-395 crosses the Massachusetts border and continues to Auburn, a southern suburb of Worcester, where I-395 merges with Interstate 90 into Interstate 290 to Worcester.


South of Wauregan, I-395 was originally part of the Connecticut Turnpike, which also includes I-95. On January 2, 1958, the section from Flanders to Wauregan opened to traffic, covering 58 kilometers. The turnpike then branched off to South Killingly on the Rhode Island border . Construction began on the remainder of I-395 as far as Worcester in Massachusetts in 1964. In 1967 the first part of this opened over 18 kilometers to Putnam. In 1969, I-395 reached the Massachusetts border, but it wasn’t until 1977 that the last section in Massachusetts was also opened. The highway was then numbered State Route 52 in Connecticut. In 1983, the route was renumbered to I-395.
