Night lane closures
to resume on Merritt
The Connecticut Department of Transportation has announced that nighttime construction on the Merritt Parkway project in Westport and Fairfield is scheduled to resume in April.
Motorists traveling on the Merritt between the Congress Street overpass in Fairfield and the Newtown Turnpike overpass in Westport can expect nightly northbound and southbound lane closures.
The contractor will begin restoration work on Parkway bridges, resume milling and paving operations in southbound lanes, and will begin shoulder reconstruction and drainage improvements in the right side shoulder areas currently behind temporary concrete barriers. Some limited daytime construction may be performed that will not impact traffic operations on the Parkway.
The project will
rehabilitate five miles of Route 15 and 11 bridge structures in Fairfield
