In Eastern Connecticut sits an under funded, deserted, and unfinished highway that goes by the official name of CT Route 11. While traveling this road to nowhere it is almost certain you will be alone with no fear of rush hour traffic. Originally proposed to be a direct route from Colchester to Interstate 95, this indirect Route drops you off in the small town of Salem. The year 1972 was the last year of construction leaving a half finished highway with a large unpaved portion complete with carved mountains, two overpass bridges and storm drains.
Plans to revive the construction have been brought up countless times over the years with proposed tolls to fund the project, but each attempt has failed.
