CT 200 Turnpikes

The Quaddick Road portion of Route 200 is part of the old Thompson Turnpike, also known as the Providence and Springfield Turnpike, incorporated in 1803 and operated until about 1880.

Its junction with the Boston and Hartford Turnpike (now Route 193) is credited with helping a "flourishing village to be built" at the Thompson Green.

CT 200 History

Commissioned in 1932, Route 200 was created out of part of the old State Highway 185. It hasn't changed much since then, save for an interchange built when Route 52 (now I-395) opened in the late 1960s.
