DOT Announcement

June 16, 2017

The DOT is announcing upcoming weeknight closures of the I-95 Northbound Exit 8 off-ramp in Stamford starting on or about June 28, 2017. The closures will take place from 9 PM to 6 AM, Monday to Friday. Motorists are advised to use exit 7. The closures will be necessary for four to six weeks and will allow for the drilling and installation of the steel piles required for the new Exit 8 off-ramp approach retaining wall.

About the project:
The project consists of improvements to the Interstate 95, Exit 8 off-ramp and to the adjacent areas along Atlantic Street and South State Street in Stamford. This project will improve the lane configuration along South State Street and provide a more efficient traffic flow exiting I-95 as well as improve the drainage in the area.
