NEWS & INFORMATION
What to Expect this Season on the Merritt Parkway

LANE CLOSURE INFORMATION:

Lane closures SB and NB every night, Monday through Thursday for the duration of the Project which is scheduled to be completed at the end of October next year.

The locations of the closure within the Project limits will vary based on the operations being performed:

  • The earliest start for lane closures for SB is at 7PM,  starting at exit 40A.
  • The earliest start for lane closures for NB is at 9PM.
  • The Contractor avoids working Friday night but may work if work was canceled earlier in the week because of weather or if they plan to do paving during the week.
  • On Fridays the earliest lane closures can occur is 8PM SB and 9PM NB.

USEFUL TRAVEL TIPS:

  •  Avoid the beginning of the work shift (7pm to 10pm) because that’s when lane closure patterns are installed, and traffic will slow
    and back-up.
  •  Avoid when traffic patterns are being removed in the morning – typically 4:30AM to 6AM.

OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION:

  • If you are travelling on the Merritt Parkway (New York Line to Stratford) and Wilbur Cross Parkway (Stratford to Meriden) the same useful
    travel tips can be applied on other Projects as they will have similar start times and construction constraints.
