The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is announcing that to facilitate construction work associated with the I-95 project in East Lyme, the exit 74 on-ramp to I-95 Northbound will need to be closed. The on-ramp to I-95 Northbound (at Exit 74) will be closed on Thursday, June 29, 2023, beginning at 8:00 p.m. and re-opening at 5:00 a.m. to allow for the installation of temporary illumination units on the temporary traffic barriers. Motorists are advised to follow the posted detour.
The purpose of the project is to correct the vertical geometry of I-95, replace the I-95 bridge over Route 161, and construct new on and off-ramps at exit 74. DOT Project No. 44-0156 was awarded to Manafort Brothers at a cost of $148,000,000 on February 1, 2023.
To access I-95 Northbound, motorists should continue on Route 161 North (turns into Route 1), proceed left on to Cross Road, turn left on to Waterford Parkway, and then take the entrance ramp to I-95 Northbound.
** Please note that the start of this closure can change at any time based on weather or resources. **
