Before Route 2 was built, Manchester Road used to come up from a valley and connect to New London Turnpike at an awkward angle, right at Bucks’ Corner and the Wassuc Green. When Route 2 was built, a bridge was constructed over the highway and the intersection was straightened out.

A small part of the old road still exists, climbing up from under the modern Manchester Road along the back of Wassuc Green.

Looking downhill at the old road.
