WATERFORD – The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) will be closing a portion of I-395 southbound over Route 85 in Waterford to facilitate rehabilitation of the bridge.
The closure is scheduled to begin on Friday, July 19, at 6:00 p.m., and will reopen to traffic on Monday, July 29, at 6:00 p.m.
I-395 southbound at the Exit 2 interchange will be rerouted down the Exit 2 off-ramp. Traffic will be able to cross Route 85 through the signalized intersection to access I-395 southbound via the on-ramp at the same intersection. The detour route using the off and on-ramps will be posted with the necessary signage to guide traffic around the project site.
Route 85 will remain open in both directions during the closure of I-395, however, traffic is expected to be heavily impacted. Drivers are urged to follow the posted diversion route to minimize the traffic impacts at the project location.
