Traffic update: 7 a.m.

Still a pretty good rise on southwestern Connecticut highways. But we know it won’t last.

Interstate 95

We’ve already got some solid congestion between Exit 27 in Bridgeport and Exit 22 in Fairfield.

Traffic slows again around Exit 17 in Saugatuck; speeds in the low 40s mph.

Past Norwalk it’s a decent ride into Stamford and Greenwich.

Merritt Parkway

Starting to see some showdowns around the Park Avenue exit in Congress Street in Fairfield.

Overall, not a bad ride for this time of day.

Route 7

Traffic building on Route 7 south in Norwalk before the 95 merge.

Route 8

SB traffic slowing down just before the Commodore Issac Hull Bridge in Shelton.

Interstate 84

Looking good between Danbury and Waterbury both directions.


On or close to schedule.
