The Coos Road connected the Kennebec River to the Connecticut River and presently is made up of parts of Routes 17, 133, and 156, as well as sections of various undesignated and unmaintained roads. Over the last two centuries, the Coos Road came to be seen more as a series of routes between towns, which led to the loss of its identity as one of Maine's early thoroughfares.
