Lanes will be closed at spots in Greenwich, Stamford and Darien on Interstate 95 for three nights this week, Tuesday through Thursday, for bridge inspections and maintenance work, the state Department of Transportation announced.
Daytime work on the highway is also scheduled for stretches in Greenwich and Norwalk this week.
The work starts at 11 p.m. each night and is scheduled to conclude at 6 a.m. the next morning, starting Tuesday, Sept. 4 and ending early Friday morning. In Darien, the work will be on stretches of the highway from Stamford to Exit 12, the announcement said.
Two lanes at a time will be closed, sometimes on the right, sometimes on the left, on both the northbound- and southbound-traffic sides of the highway, ConnDOT said.
