9 a.m. traffic update

Today’s morning commute hasn’t been easy. Lots of people are going to be late today.

Sure there were a few accidents on southwestern Connecticut roads, but the big problem today was simply congestion on the Merritt, 95 and I-84.

Interstate 95

Horrible. A SB bumper to bumper crawl from Exit 34 in Stratford all the way down to Exit 14 in Norwalk. That’s more than 20 miles; from the Housatonic to Norwalk rivers.

Speeds pick up a bit in Darien and then it’s slow again in Stamford.

Exit 18 in Westport

Exit 15 in Norwalk

Exit 8 in Stamford

Exit 3 in Greenwich

Merritt Parkway

Sorry; not much better there. It’s a slog of about 18 miles from Trumbull to New Canaan.

Speeds increase to the low 30s mph, then you’re slammed again in Norwalk with delays.
