CT 127 History
Circa 2004, new signs on I-95 started mentioning Route 127. Photo taken on I-95 northbound, May 2006, by Kurumi
In the 1920s, State Highway 127 followed the old Route 130 west of US 7 in Kent.
The modern Route 127, commissioned in 1932, originally had its south end at US 1, for a length of 5.47 miles. Around that time, it was being called the "New Trumbull Road".
In 1978, Route 127's south end was pulled back to Huntington Turnpike (SR 730), for a length of 4.69 miles. In 1992, it was extended back to US 1; and in 1995, extended again to Route 130.
Until about 2004, Route 127 appeared not to be signed south of US 1. A photo once available at Gribblenation showed Route 127 signed there only to the north. During the recent construction on I-95 in the area, new signs were added, now mentioning Route 127 (see photo).
