If you have to get into and around in New Haven this weekend, prepare for heavy traffic.
Graduations, a parade and several activities will bring traffic and drivers will either have to find alternate routes or brace themselves for traffic delays as lanes are shifted because of the Q Bridge project.
Starting tonight, the ramp from Interstate 95 North to Interstate 91 will be down to one lane and the Long Wharf entrance to Interstate 95 North will be shut down
The Freddie Fixer Parade will be held on Sunday and this is graduation for several colleges, including Yale, Southern Connecticut State University, Quinnipiac University, University of New Haven and Albertus Magnus.
The New Haven police presence will be high to help make traffic move more smoothly, but officers are asking drivers to be patient.
“I still have to come in and out, even going to soccer games and baseball games. We usually have to cross the bridge, too,” Nancy Williams, of Guilford, said.
