CT DOT plans Route 8 new exit signs and numbers from Bridgeport to Valley

The State Department of Transportation announced plans are being developed for traffic sign replacement and renumbering along Route 8 corridor. Plans are also being prepared to replace signs and complex sign supports along Route 8 in Bridgeport, Shelton, Derby and Naugatuck. Additionally, to be in conformance with federal standards, state transportation officials say mileage-based exit numbering will be included on the entirety of Route 8. The state DOT website states, on renumbering, that “Highway exit numbers will be modified to a mileage-based exit numbering system to conform with Federal standards as part of corridor sign replacement projects.” The design plans for the project are expected to be completed in the spring with construction commencing in the winter of 2022.
