From Sunday, July 1 through Nov. 15, if you drive at night on Interstate 95 in Greenwich or as far east as Exit 7 in Stamford, you may find a lane closed for “pavement condition evaluation and roadway inspections,” the Connecticut Department of Transportation announced.
And some shoulders will be closed at various times during the day and night.
The nighttime lane closures won’t take place every night, but they’ll continue through Nov. 15, ConnDOT said in the Thursday announcement.
Lane closures will be on both the northbound- and southbound-traffic sides of the highway. When they occur, they’ll be between these times during each week:
- You can also expect lane closures at night on the Merritt Parkway in Greenwich in a project already begun and lasting until Oct. 24, the department previously announced.
“The evaluation/inspection is part of the first phase of work for a future pavement rehabilitation, bridge repair and safety improvement project on I-95 between the New York State line and the I-95 bridge over Greenwich Avenue and Rippowam River in Stamford,” the Thursday announcement said.
