NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Beginning tonight, the big move for southbound traffic on I-95 away from the old Q bridge will begin, and by the end of the weekend all traffic will be on the new bridge.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation said the traffic shift will take place starting at 8:00 p.m. and continue through 6:00 a.m. Monday.
Here is the schedule of changes, as provided by ConnDOT:
- 8 p.m. Friday: Exit 50 Woodward Ave closes until 6:00 a.m. Monday
