2 weeks of bridge work to close I-95 lanes in Bridgeport

November 23, 2018

Expect northbound nighttime lane closures on the P.T. Barnum Bridge on I-95 for the next two weeks.

The state Department of Transportation says the closures are needed because of a nighttime bridge maintenance project that will begin on Monday and end on Friday, Dec. 7.

The work will be done from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday evenings.

The work is being performed by “state forces,” DOT says.

Motorists can expect lane closures on I-95 NB between Exit 26 (Wordin Avenue) and Exit 28 (Rte. 127 East Main Street). Traffic control personnel and signing patterns will be used to guide motorists through the work zone.
