On Monday, June 9, the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) has scheduled a traffic shift to take place on the southbound I-95 Exit 14 off ramp in order to allow construction crews to complete the widening of the exit ramp.

The project will not only improve the lane width and drainage in the area, but it will also improve the merge-distance on I-95 at Exits 14 and 15.

Motorists will experience periodic ramp closures while ramp traffic is being shifted onto the recently reconstructed portion of the ramp, according to ConnDOT.

Work on the exit ramp has taken place behind the barrier during weekdays and nights since Tuesday, May 27.

Southbound I-95 Exit 14 off-ramp traffic will be halted intermittently for no more than 10 minutes at a time for the traffic shift on June 9, according to ConnDOT.

Regular northbound I-95 lane closures are scheduled to take place:

  • Monday-Wednesday: 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  • Thursday at 10 p.m. until¬† 6 a.m. on Friday.
  • Friday at 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. on Saturday.

Regular southbound I-95 lane closures are scheduled to take place:

  • Monday-Thursday: 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  • Friday at 10 p.m. until 7 a.m. on Saturday.

Modifications or extensions to the regular lane closure schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions.

There will be variable message signs on I-95 to advise motorists of traffic conditions in the area.

Daytime blasting

ConnDOT announced that daytime blasting operations are scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 10, along the shoulders of I-95 in Norwalk between Exit 14 and 15.

There will be traffic stoppages between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to remove rock in the construction area.

According to ConnDOT, the blasting and rock removal operation will take approximately three weeks to complete.

Traffic will be halted with slow-moving roadblocks, which will cause significant delays in the area, according to ConnDOT.

Traffic on I-95 in both directions will be halted for intervals of 5-10 minutes two or three times between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. during blasting operations.

Variable message signs will be used to provide advance warnings and information on traffic conditions in the area.
