Tomorrow: Exit 82A on I-95 North Closed

Posted on May 21, 2018 by admin


As a result of the recent storms that hit our area, two large trees that have lost limbs and show signs of decline, as well as damage from multiple vehicle strikes, need to be removed from the 82A exit ramp on I-95 northbound in Waterford. The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) will be closing the exit ramp tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22nd, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to work on the tree removal.

Please prepare for this to impact your daily travels if you commute through this vicinity.

Thank you.

The loss of Conor Irwin was a tragedy for the Irwin Family and our community. In my best effort to respond to my constituents’ concerns and honor Conor’s life, I asked Deputy Republican Leader at Large State Rep. Tom O’Dea, member of the Legislature’s Transportation Committee, to join me in discussing the significance of Conor’s Law. House Bill 5314 is now on its way to the governor’s desk, where it will await his signature to become law. Thank you.
