Pavement Preservation in  Fairfield and Bridgeport on Interstate 95 Requiring Ramp Closures

The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing ramp closures on I-95 at the Route 8 Interchange in Bridgeport for the Week of June 11, 2018.

The project involves milling and paving a section of I-95 between the New England Avenue overpass and the Broad Street overpass for a total distance of 3 miles.  This project will also include milling and paving of on-ramps and off-ramps and repair of existing concrete bridge decks.  Also included will be minor bridge repairs to Bridge No. 00105A over Metro North and a city street in Bridgeport.  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 an initial cost of $14,462,816.25. The scope of the Project was increased by $5,701,182.54 to incorporate Bridge No. 105 for a total of approximately 0.75 miles and is scheduled for revised completion on or about September 7, 2018.
