• Summary An old number, probably never signposted, for a short segment of today's Route 14A.

There is very little information on this highway: two entries in a ConnDOT spreadsheet. The rest is some reasonable association with other known facts, and some guesses. Route 49A was probably never signed.

In 1950, Route 211 in Sterling was decommissioned. State route 95 was extended eastward, replacing most of Route 211, to reach Route 14. The 0.03-mile leftover portion of Route 211, ending at the Plainfield town line, became (in the highway log) Route 95 Extension. This was probably not signed.

The ConnDOT spreadsheet (see "Sources") makes no mention of Route 95 Extension, but does note that in 1959, when Route 95 became Route 49, a road called Route 95A in Plainfield and Sterling became Route 49A. Also in 1959, Route 49A became SR 586, which in 1963 became part of the new Route 14A.

The original Route 211 stopped at the Plainfield town line, but Route 95A/49A apparently entered Plainfield, and must have been extended at some time. I don't know if it reached Route 12.

In other words:
