The span over the northbound-traffic lanes of Interstate 95 is now in place, as of this morning, and traffic in both directions now flows under the bridge unimpeded, three lanes northbound, four lanes southbound.
Next weekend, they install the span over the southbound-traffic side of the bridge.
Connecticut Department of Transportation officials had said they might finish each weekend’s span replacement earlier than 5 a.m. Monday, when commuters would start driving under the bridge, and a couple of posts on a ConnDOT traffic website said the work might be done at noon on Sunday, but the highway was opened earlier than that.
Here’s a look at the bridge from the ConnDOT traffic cam, looking southwest, with the southbound lanes on the right:
