The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) has announced that there will be temporary traffic shifts on I-84 Eastbound and Westbound – around Exits 9 and 10 in Newtown – to allow for resurfacing and safety improvements to the infrastructure.


Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, February 11th, and to be completed by November 2020.

This project will require multiple stages for construction operations. A majority of traffic impacts will occur during night work operations. The schedule is as follows:



Monday – Thursday: 8:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m.

Friday: 9:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

Saturday: 8:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m.

Sunday: 10:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m.



Monday – Wednesday: 9:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

Thursday – Friday: 10:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

Saturday: 10:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.

Sunday: 10:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.


The construction operations may detour one ramp at a time for either Exit 9 and Exit 10 on-ramps or off-ramps between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., Sunday through Saturday.


Please maintain a safe speed when driving in this vicinity and seek alternate routes if needed.
