    Snow has been falling in the Fairfield, Westport, Stamford and Danbury areas and Route 7, Interstate 84 and the Merritt Parkway (Route 15) are particularly slick.

    There are delays on Interstate 95 between Norwalk and Bridgeport. There are also heavy delays on the Merritt Parkway.


    The Merritt Parkway was closed in the southbound direction in Trumbull at exit 48 due to a three-vehicle crash with injuries, but one lane has reopened. Then, a tractor-trailer got stuck and another vehicle crashed into it, causing further delays.

    In Greenwich, a tractor-trailer was blocking a lane of Interstate 95 South in the area of exit 3.

    In Westport, a tractor-trailer collided with a car on the Saugatuck River Bridge on Interstate 95 north at exit 18.  Traffic was nearly stopped in that area and has also been slow in Norwalk as snow continues to fall. There are two other crashes on I-95, including some spinouts.

    There was a ladder in the roadway on Route 25 South in Trumbull between the exit 9 ramps.

    There have also been multiple spinouts on Interstate 84.
