No closed highway lanes over holiday weekends

In order to allow drivers to get where they’re going for Christmas and New Year's as easily as possible, the state Department of Transportation announced that there will be no scheduled lane closures on Interstate 95, Interstate 91 or Route 34 over the upcoming holiday weekends: Friday to Sunday and Dec. 31 to Jan. 2.
Only emergency roadwork will be considered to result in road closures.
The work on the three roads is part of the I-95 New Haven Harbor Crossing Corridor Improvement Program, which includes the new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, the new Route 34 flyover bridge, and reconstruction of the I-95/I-91/Route 34 interchange.
For more information, go to or call the automated toll-free program hotline, (866) 277-9595. If you have questions, call (203) 752-1996 or e-mail
To register for free notification of highway and rail incidents from the DOT’s E-Alert System, go to and click on “Sign Up For E-Traffic Alerts.”
