Road Closures

May 30, 2017

The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that there will be road closures on South State Street, Atlantic Street and I-95 Northbound Exit 8 off-ramp in Stamford on June 3, 2017 (Saturday). Traffic will be detoured around the construction area.

This project will improve the lane configuration along South State Street and provide a more efficient traffic flow exiting I-91.The work will also require temporary off-ramp lane reductions for the construction of the new Exit 8 Flyover Bridge and retaining walls along the I-95 corridor between Atlantic Street and Canal Street.

To accommodate the space required for the cranes, South State Street will be closed between Guernsey Avenue and Canal Street. Atlantic Street will be closed between North State Street and Dock Street. In addition, the I-95 Exit 8 Northbound off ramp will be closed. Closures will be in effect on June 3, 2017, from 6 a.m. through 5 p.m. Detours will be in effect to divert motorists and pedestrians around the construction area.
