This plaque is located in downtown Shelton inside the Exit 14 entrance loop. I've seen it from a distance a zillion times, so today I finally pulled over and took a look. Click to enlarge the photo and read what it says. Honestly, if you had asked me, I would not have remembered that the Route 8 bridge is called the Commodore Isaac Hull Bridge, or even who Mr. Hull was (the bridge spans the Housatonic River) . I guess that's why they do plaques. This one is difficult to get to, however, because of traffic.
