The schedule for the Interstate 95 construction project in new Haven has shifted because of inclement weather.
Work was supposed to begin at 10 p.m. on Friday, but now the work will begin at 10 p.m. on Saturday and drivers should expect significant delays on I-95 Southbound in New Haven, until around noon on Sunday as crews shift I-95 Southbound traffic onto the existing northbound lanes on the Old Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, also known as the Q Bridge, according to the state Department of Transportation.
Only one lane of I-95 Southbound will be available from 10 p.m. on Saturday until around 8 a.m. on Sunday. Two lanes of I-95 South will be available from 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday.
I-95 South restrictions will extend between the Frontage Road on-ramp, exit 51, and the ramp to Interstate 91 North, exit 48.
The ramp to and from I-95 South, including the Woodward Avenue on-ramp, exit 50, will remain open during the traffic shifting operation.
This work is part of the I-95 New Haven Harbor Crossing Corridor Improvement Program, which includes construction on the new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, the new Route 34 Flyover Bridge and reconstruction of the I-95 / I-91 / Route 34 Interchange.
