The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that upcoming steel erection operations on the Scott Road Bridge (renamed the Najla G. Noujaim Memorial Bridge) will require a closure and detour of I-84 westbound (WB) for two nights followed by I-84 eastbound (EB) for three nights. Motorists will detour from I-84 to local roads, and back to I-84, via detours at both westbound and eastbound Exits 25, as follows:
I-84 Closure and Detour Time:
11:00 PM to 5:00 AM.
Dates and Detour Routes:
• Westbound I-84 - Sunday and Monday, August 5 and 6:
I-84 traffic will detour off the highway at WB Exit 25 off-ramp, continue straight onto Plank Road, and re-enter I-84 via the WB 25 on-ramp.
• Eastbound I-84 – Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, August 7, 8 and 9:
I-84 traffic will detour off the highway at EB Exit 25 off-ramp, continue straight on Reidville Drive, and re-enter I-84 via the EB 25 on-ramp at Scott Road.
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 the following night.
