I-95 New Haven Harbor Crossing
Corridor Impovement Program
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) is announcing that lane changes on I-95 northbound in the area of Exit 51, Frontage Road in New Haven will occur on Monday night, November 5, from 7:00p.m. to 6:00a.m., weather permitting.
 
Effective Tuesday morning November 6, 2007, the right lane of I-95 Northbound will be an “Exit-Only” off-ramp for Exit 51, Frontage Road in New Haven.  I-95 will be reduced to two through lanes in this area but will return to three through lanes as motorists proceed north of Frontage Road.

The work is part of Contract C2 of the I-95 New Haven Harbor Crossing Corridor Improvement Program.  Contract C2 is located in New Haven and consists of the reconstruction of approximately one mile of I-95 just east of Stiles Street in New Haven to the New Haven/East Haven town line. Construction is scheduled to be completed in June 2009.
