Pavement Preservation Project on Interstate 95 in Fairfield and Bridgeport


To facilitate pavement preservation activities and resurfacing of I-95 and associated ramps within the project limits, The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing nighttime ramp closures on I-95 over the next two weeks.

The project involves milling bridge decks, repairs to exposed bridge decks and paving a section of I-95 between the New England Avenue overpass  (near Exit 24) and the Wordin Avenue overpass (near Exit 26) for a total distance of 2.3 miles. The contractor will then reverse direction proceeding southbound on Interstate 95 all within this construction season.

There will be milling and paving of on-ramps and off-ramps and repair of existing concrete bridge decks. Detour routes will be provided should ramps need to be closed for construction activities.

DOT Project No. 0050-0219 was awarded to Waters Construction Co., Inc. of Bridgeport CT on June 3, 2016 at a cost of $14,462,816.25 and is scheduled for completion on November 14, 2017.
