Weeknight Off Peak I-95 Exit 8 Northbound Off Ramp Closures in Stamford
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that there will be weeknight closures of the I-95 northbound Exit 8 off ramp in the City of Stamford starting on or about June 13, 2018.
The project consists of improvements to the Interstate 95, Exit 8 off ramp and to the adjacent areas along Atlantic Street and South State Street in Stamford. This project will improve the lane configuration along South State Street and provide a more efficient traffic flow exiting I-95 as well as improve the drainage in the area. The work will require temporary off-ramp lane reductions for the construction of the new Exit 8 Flyover Bridge and retaining walls along the I-95 corridor between Atlantic Street and Canal Street.
The closures will be used to allow for the final paving and pavement marking installations.
