The Fairfield Police Department posted a “code red” alert on its Facebook page Sunday morning, warning commuters to expect a rough journey Monday.
“Commuters need to be prepared for a long commute on Monday,” the alert states. “Please make alternate plans and please consider staying home if possible. I-95 is expected to be overloaded. Metro North may have some buses available but the only thing they have said so far is that they will not have enough to handle the 20,000 passengers that travel this section of the line.”
The department advises commuters to check its Facebook page, website, and local media for updates. Not a bad idea.
