History

In 1933, Route 17 existed between Hillsdale, NY and Great Barrington. (17 still extended into New York through 1928.) By 1939, the road between Great Barrington and Woronoco had been upgaded; both it and the road between Hillsdale and Great Barrington bear the number 23. However, a 17 also appears alongside the 23 designation near West Otis. By 1942, the 17 designation was completely missing.


17 reappeared when modern I-95 was created north of Danvers between 1953 and 1956. US-1 was routed onto the highway; what is now US-1 was given the number 17. By 1959, the highway had become I-95 and US 1 was put back onto the old routing, once again eliminating 17.
