I-95 Traffic Stoppages Expected in New Haven During Sign Construction

If you plan on passing through New Haven overnight Monday and Wednesday, you might want to avoid Interstate 95 or leave some extra time in your trip.

Traffic along I-95 in the Long Wharf area will come to a stop as construction work to install new overhead sign supports gets underway as part of the New Haven Harbor Crossing Project.

Work is slated to begin at 9 p.m., with the stoppage happening somewhere between midnight and 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Northbound and southbound traffic will be stopped for 35 minutes on the highway.

The same process will happen on Wednesday overnight.

Drivers are asked to give themselves some extra time to account for expected delays.

There will also be extended closures on the I-91 southbound connection to I-95 northbound and at the Wooster Street I-95 north on-ramp Oct. 3 to 5 due to accelerated bridge construction, according to the state's Department of Transportation.
