The second of two weekends when I-95 will be closed at Exit 9 in Stamford begins tonight, June 7. Motorists are advised to avoid the area, which may experience heavy traffic delays.
Last weekened, officials had expected a traffic nightmare through Stamford over the weekend as drivers took local roads to bypass the highway, but officials said congestion was not as bad as feared. In fact, the highway was re-opened nearly a day earlier than expected as work progressed more quickly than planned. Re-opening had been planned for 5 a.m. Monday, June 3.
