The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that night closures of the I-95 NB ramp to Route 34 WB (Exit 47) will occur Monday, February 7, 2011, through Friday, February 11, 2011, between the hours of 9 PM and 5 AM. This work is in support of the construction of the new I-95 Northbound to Route 34 Westbound ‘flyover’ bridge between Exits 45 and the interchange of I-95/I-91/Route 34 in New Haven.
Motorists traveling on I-95 NB wishing to access downtown New Haven will be redirected to Ella Grasso Boulevard via Kimberly Avenue (Exit 44).
