Route 1 in Old Saybrook remains closed for bridge replacement work, despite plans to reopen on Wednesday.
Old Saybrook fire officials warned that the Department of Transportation will not be able to reopen the road due to safety concerns and the closure may remain in place until possibly Friday.
The road was closed on Friday for the demolition and construction of a new bridge over Center Brook. The work was originally scheduled to take five days.
Drivers can detour around using Interstate 95 exits 66 or 67.
