    Groton ― The state Department of Transportation has announced that it will install a wrong-way detection system at the Exit 3A northbound off-ramp from Route 349 (Clarence B. Sharp Highway).

    The work will take place from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday.

    The DOT said drivers can expect a temporary ramp closure on Route 349 (Clarence B. Sharp Highway) at the Exit 3A northbound off-ramp to Route I. A detour will be in place.
