New Haven - Motorists on interstates 95 and 91 can expect overnight delays later this month while traveling through New Haven as the state Department of Transportation continues work on projects related to the New Haven Harbor Crossing Corridor Improvement Plan - the “Q” bridge.
Construction will result in a single open lane July 26-29 on I-95 south between exits 50 and 46, and at the I-91 connection to I-95 south. The work is expected to cause significant delays, the state DOT says.
I-95 will be reduced to a single lane starting at 10 p.m. on each of the three days, reopening to two lanes on July 27 and July 28 at 8 a.m. and on July 29 at 6 a.m. The I-91 connection to I-95 will be reduced to one lane starting at 10 p.m. on July 26 through 6 a.m. on July 29.
The DOT said the work is part of a series of traffic shifts as work progresses on the Pearl Harbor Memorial (Q) Bridge, reconstruction of the I-95/I-91/Route 34 interchange and other projects.
