Route 130 begins at an intersection with US 1 in Fairfield and heads east into Bridgeport.

In Stratford, it passes under I-95 again without a junction before intersecting I-95 a second and ending at another intersection with US 1.
Route 130 is designated the A.W. Penn Memorial Highway from the Fairfield-Bridgeport town line to State Street.
In 1922, state roads were given number designations in New England for the first time. Modern Route 130 was originally part of New England Route 1. In 1927, the U.S. Highway system was created and New England Route 1 became part of U.S. Route 1 (US 1). In 1932, an alternate route of US 1 (US 1 Alt. was designated along North Avenue, Boston Avenue, and Barnum Avenue further inland (now modern US 1). In 1963, US 1A in the Bridgeport area was deleted and re-designated as US 1. The original US 1 alignment along Fairfield Avenue, State Street, and Stratford Avenue became unsigned state roads, with designations of SR 771 (Fairfield-Bridgeport) and SR 769 (Bridgeport-Stratford). In 1992, these were re-designated as modern Route 130.
The entire route is in Fairfield County.
