At one time, Essex Junction held the title of being the location of the busiest intersection in the state, with Routes 15, 2A and 117 forming what is known locally as "Five Corners" in the center of the Village, and railroad tracks that crossed all three routes within yards of the intersection. The "Busiest Intersection" in Vermont is now located at Williston Road and Dorset Street in South Burlington.
