This is the first map for drivers of the Merritt Parkway in 50 years.
Early Merritt Parkway maps promoted the 1938 road as the "Gateway to New England"
and advised travelers of the rules of the road. This new guide is designed to enhance
the way neighbors, commuters and passing motorists experience the Merritt Parkway,
which connects and unifies the people and special places of Southwest Connecticut.
It highlights some of the great bridges and their remarkable details, great old trees,
swamps and rivers, stone walls and rock outcrops. Additionally, many parks, arts and
science centers, historic sites and traditional town centers along (or accessible from)
the Parkway have been included. Directions and phone numbers are provided for some of
