The CT Department of Transportation will launch a project later this year to replace signs on Route 8, including changing the exit numbers for Naugatuck.
The DOT is preparing to change Exit 26 (South Main Street and Route 63) to Exit 25A, to switch Exit 27 to Exit 25B and to convert Exit 28 (Union City) to Exit 26. They will also replace mileage markers on the highway and large signs that mark the exits in Naugatuck.
According to the DOT, the signs have reached the end of their useful life span and this project will bring them into compliance with federal regulations. Any signs that have recently been replaced or are scheduled to be replaced due to other projects will be excluded from the project.
