A nighttime paving and safety-improvement project is scheduled to restart on the Merritt Parkway on Monday, Aug. 6 from the Greenwich-Stamford border near Exit 31 to Exit 37 in New Canaan (just north of where Mansfield Avenue becomes New Canaan’s South Avenue).

The Connecticut Department of Transportation announced the resumption of the project, which had originally started in August 2013. It consists of 6.5 miles of roadway resurfacing, safety improvements, and landscaping enhancements.  The work also includes rehabilitation of five historic bridges over Route 15.

The department announcement doesn’t say so, but lane closures are inevitable with repaving work. Drivers at night may or may not find lane closures on the days and times listed at the end of this article.

ConnDOT Project No. 0135-0270 was awarded to O&G Industries at a cost of $53,031,742.62 on July 23, 2013, and was scheduled to be completed by September 2018.  The work is being administered by the State of Connecticut District 3 Office of Construction.
