Right Lane Closure on I-95 Northbound Gold Star Memorial Bridge

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is announcing that a right lane closure on Interstate 95 northbound Gold Star Memorial Bridge in New London and Groton will begin on October 11, 2022.

The rehabilitation project consists of strengthening the truss approach spans of the Gold Star Memorial Bridge. The work requires the closing of a right or left shoulder and adjacent lane while activities are proceeding below the deck surface on the truss sections of the bridge. This work began February 28, 2022, with an anticipated completion date of June 25, 2025.

DOT Project No. 0094-0256 was awarded to Aetna Bridge Company for $50,895,103.60 on December 1, 2021 and is scheduled to be completed June 25, 2025.  This project is being administered by the Division of Construction Operations, District 2 in Norwich.



Beginning October 11, 2022, the right shoulder and adjacent lane will be closed for the remainder of the construction season or until further notice. This will reduce the Gold Star Memorial Bridge to four lanes in the northbound direction on I-95.


The lane closures will be maintained with a combination of construction signs, traffic drums, and other traffic control devices.


Motorists are advised to use caution and maintain a safe speed when driving through work zones.

Operating Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
