Construction to again close I-95 in Stamford

STAMFORD(AP) — Travelers can expect lengthy delays on Interstate 95 in Connecticut this weekend.

The state Department of Transportation says the interstate will be closed in both directions near exit 9 in Stamford for the second consecutive weekend as workers replace a bridge that carries traffic on Route 1 over the interstate.

The project involves the demolition of the two bridge spans that carry Route 1 over I-95 and the installation of replacement spans.

The state says the highway will be closed until 5 a.m. on Monday.

Gov. Ned Lamont urged drivers to plan ahead if they need to travel through the area.
