New Haven/Milford....YUCK! Not a big fan, but at least I can avoid the other cities. Why can't my friends live somewhere like me where intersections are few and far between and in my hometown we had one stop light, which only blinked red and yellow...

#93 is about 10 miles down the road from my house. Luckily, I rarely travel that section of road.

I think that is FAR FAR from the worse and can name MANY in CT that much worse.

I thought that was a joke...

I didn't say it was the worst, did I? I'm just not a fan of it and have experience driving through it. I'm sure there are worse CT intersections and not to mention Boston, Springfield and Worcester.
