8/25 merge onto I-95 is backed up

Usually a busy spot later in the morning, the bottom of the Routes 8/25 feeder to I-95 in Bridgeport is already backed up more than a mile, because of an accident.

A car that jumped a barrier was blocking two lanes but now has been towed away, but one lane is still closed.

The crash is at the Exit 1 (Myrtle/Prospect) ramp. No report of injuries yet, and no estimate on how long it will take to clear.

For now, getting off at Fairfield Avenue (Exit 2) and taking Cortland to State Street to Lafayette Boulevard might be the best bet. You can get on I-95 in either direction there.
