Intermittent Nighttime Closure of the I-95 Southbound
Between Exit 51 in East Haven and Exit 46 in New Haven
for Wednesday, August 1, 2007
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) is announcing that a survey work on I-95 Southbound between Exit 51 in East Haven and Exit 46 in New Haven is being rescheduled for Wednesday, August 1 from 10:00p.m. to 6:00a.m. The work is necessary to survey the area for milling and paving as part of the emergency deck repairs on the existing Pearl Harbor Memorial (Q) Bridge and will occur weather permitting.
Lane closures can be expected and the survey work will also require traffic to be halted for 10-minute intervals several times overnight between 12:00 midnight and 5:00a.m.
The work is part of the I-95 New Haven Harbor Crossing Corridor Improvement Program and is being performed under a $1.5-million contract awarded to Blakeslee Arpaia Chapman, Inc., of Branford, Connecticut. Work is scheduled to be completed in late September 2007.
