4 weeks until bridge is installed on Route 1 over I-95 at Exit 9, Stamford

In four weeks, the first of two bridge spans on Route 1 (East Main Street) over I-95 at Exit 9 in Stamford will be moved and set in place.

On Friday, May 31 at 11 p.m., I-95 motorists will be detoured onto 2-lane temporary roads in each direction while construction is underway.

Earlier in the evening, Route 1 traffic will also be detoured around the work site onto local roads. I-95 and Route 1 will reopen to through traffic by 5 a.m. Monday, June 3rd.

The following week Friday, June 7, beginning at 11 p.m., the second bridge span will be installed as traffic is detoured again around the construction zone.

In an interview with Tony Aiello of WCBS Channel 2- New York, CT State Police Sgt Robert Derry urged motorists to avoid the area on construction weekends as long travel delays are expected.
