The Connecticut Department of Transportation has announced that there will be “rolling” closures on Route 7 in New Milford from 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 15th to 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 16th to allow for a permitted oversize/overweight vehicle move.


The vehicle, which will be carrying a transformer weighing 476,700 pounds on a specialized 12-axle trailer, must be escorted by the Connecticut State Police using jumper bridges at several small crossings.


The closures will be located on Route 7 between Pickett District Road and Route 55. Route 55 (in New Milford and Sherman) may also be closed for a short duration on Tuesday, January 15th.


Modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Please drive safely through this vicinity and seek alternate routes if necessary.
