Route I-84 closure information
Closure of Eastbound I-84 Planned for Saturday (10/19) and Sunday (10/20)
With the successful replacement of the westbound bridge, the New York State Department of Transportation is replacing the eastbound portion of the Dingle Road Overpass Bridge next weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 19 and 20.
Although the bridge is located just across the state-line in New York, eastbound I-84 will be closed at Exit 20 in the Town of Southeast, NY starting at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 19. Route I-84 will be closed for approximately 24 hours, with traffic rerouted to Route 6 and then returned to I-84 at Exit 1 to travel into Connecticut. Substantial back up on eastbound I-84 and traffic delays are likely to occur during this construction period. Please use alternate routes and avoid traveling through this area. Eastbound I-84 is expected to re-open mid-afternoon on Sunday, October 20.
Please follow local traffic reports for updates during this timeframe.
