DARIEN, Conn. -- Resurfacing work on I-95 in Darien and Norwalk will impact evening and overnight traffic in Darien, according to police.
The state Department of Transportation will commence resurfacing of the highway in both the northbound and southbound directions starting Monday night. The project is expected to be completed in November. Work will be done almost every night. On some nights, there may be simultaneous road work in both directions.
When road work begins in Darien, traffic on Boston Post Road (Route 1), Tokeneke Road (Route 136) and Noroton Avenue is expected to be significantly impacted starting at around 8:30 p.m., depending on lane restrictions and traffic patterns on I-95, police said. A steady stream of traffic during the late night and overnight hours can be expected on surface streets as a result of the project.
After 10 p.m. on some evenings, there may be only one lane open in each direction on I-95, police said. The contractor has also been granted limited permission to completely close sections of I-95 for up to 10 minutes in order to position or remove equipment and supplies.
The contractors are supposed to be cleaned up and totally off the highway by the morning commute. Police said that an occasional residual impact on local streets should be expected during these hours as well.
State police and DOT inspectors will be on the site and working the I-95 project. Darien police will be used for traffic control when the project impacts the entrance and exit ramps in town.
