I-84 Nighttime Closure and Detour to Begin on Sunday Night at Exit 25 for Scott Road Bridge Steel Installation Activities
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that I-84 eastbound and westbound will be closed nightly and detoured at Exit 25. The closure and detour will start on Sunday night, May 14, and will continue through Thursday night, May 18, 2017. The closures will take place from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM.
These temporary detours are in addition to the regular nightly lane closures permitted within the area. If inclement weather causes postponement of work, the rain date will be Sunday, May 21.
Motorists will detour from I-84 to local roads, and back to I-84, via detours at both westbound and eastbound Exits 25 as described below.
I-84 traffic will detour off the highway at Exit 25, continue straight on Reidville Drive, and re-enter I-84 via the EB 25 on-ramp at Scott Road.
I-84 traffic will detour off the highway at Exit 25, continue straight onto Plank Road, and re-enter I-84 via the WB 25 on-ramp.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is working to inform local residents of current and upcoming construction activities through project newsletters, press notices, travel alerts, social media, as well as the I-84 Waterbury project website.
