Southwestern Connecticut traffic updates from the staff at Hearst Connecticut Media Group

8:30 a.m. traffic update

|

You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the view along the Merritt Parkway southbound this morning.

Traffic is crawling from the point where the Route 8/25 ramps connect in Bridgeport out through New Canaan now. That’s a stretch of more than 20 miles at an average speed of 31 miles per hour (it drops to 16 miles per hour in spots, including near Park Avenue in Bridgeport and at the Fairfield rest area). You’ll have plenty of time to finish that hard roll you’ll been hanging onto waiting to eat it.

Things aren’t great on I-95 southbound either, but the slowdown is much shorter there: from the Myrtle Avenue exit in Bridgeport to Exit 21, Mill Plain Road in Fairfield.

Then things will open up again until Norwalk, where it bogs down again at the New Creek Road exit. Go ahead, finish your breakfast. We’ll wait for you.
