SR 61C[edit]

State Route 61C (SR 61C) is a 0.72-mile-long (1.16 km)[1] connection between the Norwalk Bypass US 20/SR 18 and SR 61 southwest of Norwalk. The intersection forms a sideways triangle with SR 61 as the base on the east, US 20 as the south side, and Route 61C as the north side. SR 61C exists because US 20 bridges SR 61 on the south side of the triangle and would have not intersected SR 61 otherwise.[citation needed] SR 61C is part of a former alignment of US 20.
