I-95 Lane Closures in Fairfield

Fairfield – On Friday, September 18, 2015, both northbound and southbound traffic on I-95 in Fairfield will be reduced to one lane of travel with the closures beginning around 8:00 am. The I-95 bridge spanning Route 201 in Fairfield is undergoing a deck replacement that will impact motorists until the project shuts down for the winter in November. The lane closures will remain in place through to November.

Motorists should allow extra time as speed limits are reduced to 45 mph for both northbound and southbound traffic and fines are doubled in this work zone. Northbound wide loads will be restricted between exits 132 and 138.

T. Buck Construction of Auburn has been awarded the $ 2 million contract for this work that includes replacing the concrete decks on the northbound and southbound bridges; installing new bridge decks and waterproof membranes; replacing existing curb and rail along the bridge; and paving. The project is slated to be completed in the summer of 2016.
