Route 5/15 NB Exit 89 Traffic Shift Milestones Continue

Posted on March 24, 2020

Route 15 NB and Exit 89 traffic will be shifted to allow for next phase of construction.
Route 15 NB traffic and Exit 89 traffic will be shifted to the right to allow for the next phase of construction on the I-91 Charter Oak Bridge Project.  This will allow for a new work zone to be established on the left side of Route 15 NB, where the remaining elements of the new I-91 NB Exit 29 bridge to Route 15 NB will be constructed.
This new traffic pattern is expected to occur during the week of March 30th and will be in effect for the next eight months.
