Nighttime lane closures on southbound Gold Star Bridge announced

The state Department of Transportation will be implementing nighttime lane closures on the southbound lanes of the Gold Star Bridge, starting at 7 p.m. Monday, according to a notice from state representatives Christine Conley, D-Groton, and Joe de la Cruz, D-Groton.

The notice states that crews will be performing "miscellaneous roadwork activities requiring multiple lane closures" and the work will be done between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. nightly. It is expected that the work will be done each weekday night.

"Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling through work zones," the notice states. "Signing patterns, associated traffic devices, and State Police will be used throughout the work zones."

The upgrade project for the southbound bridge "was substantially completed in November of 2018," but some "some punch list and/or weather-dependent work remains," the notice states. 

The project was awarded to Mohawk Northeast Inc. of Plantsville, Conn., for $26 million in December 2016. More information about the project is available at:
