Interstate 395 (abbreviated I-395) is a 67-mile-long north–south Interstate Highway that begins at Interstate 95 in East Lyme, Connecticut running northwards through Connecticut's Quiet Corner, and ends at Interstate 90 in Auburn, Massachusetts, where I-395 becomes Interstate 290. The original designation for the portion of Connecticut's I-395 that was part of the Connecticut Turnpike was Route 52. Route 52 was slated to become a southward extension of Interstate 290 before it received the I-395 designation in 1983.[2]

From East Lyme to Plainfield, Connecticut, I-395 is part of the Connecticut Turnpike (the Governor John Davis Lodge Turnpike). From Plainfield to Thompson, Connecticut, I-395 is named the American Ex-Prisoner of War Memorial Highway.

Service plazas[edit]

In Connecticut, there are three Service Plazas that provide 24-hour gas stations, convenience stores, plus a Subway and Dunkin' Donuts (a legacy of the Turnpike):

  • Montville — MP 8 - Southbound only between exits 6 (former 79) and 9 (former 79A).
  • Plainfield — MP 35 - Northbound and Southbound between exits 32 (former 89) and 35 (former 90).

A State Police station is on the northbound side of the highway in Montville (between exits 6 and 9) in what used to be the Montville Northbound Service Plaza.

Recent history[edit]

In May 2013, the Connecticut Department of Transportation announced that a project that would begin in spring 2014 would include renumbering exits along I-395 and Route 2A from the then-current sequential numbering system to a distance-based scheme to conform with federal exit numbering standards. During the transition, old exit numbers will be posted alongside the new exit number through 2017.[3]

Exit list[edit]

Exit numbers will be converted to mileage-based numbers beginning in June 2015. Along with Connecticut Route 2A, these are Connecticut's initial distance-based exit numbers.[4]
