I’ve lived in Westport my whole life.
I know Routes 1, 33, 53 and 136. Of course I know I-95, and I know the Merritt Parkway is officially called Route 15. (I gave up on News12 once when a reporter called it that.)
But I never had a clue that the Sherwood Island Connector is an official state route.
Yep: It’s 476.
That’s one amazing factoid I learned from Patrick Laffaye. I also was impressed with the 2 images he supplied for last week’s Photo Challenge. They show dirt roads, and an impossibly overgrown path (with signs pointing in opposite directions).
All were taken at Sherwood Island State Park. (Click here for the photos.)
Very impressively, Brian Stern posted the right answer just 2 minutes after it went live. (He did not, however, mention Route 476.)
Nor did Diane Bosch, Jalna Jaeger and René Fontaine, when they checked in with the correct answer.
But Wendy Cusick knew that arcane Route 476 fact. Well done!
This week’s Photo Challenge is from the other end of town (duh). But where in Saugatuck is it? If you know, click “Comments” below.
