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

Traffic update: 8 a.m.

The rain has stopped, but we still got lots of traffic delays across southwestern Connecticut.

Interstate 95

Let's not forget the northbound commuters coming from New York. They too have their share of jam-ups at Exit 4 in Greenwich.

Very, very slow from Exit 29 in Bridgeport down to Exit 13 in Darien. Sorry, you’re not going to get a break from this jam-up that has knocked down speeds to the low teens.

Yes, speeds pick up slightly around Exit 10 in Darien, but you’re slammed again in downtown Stamford. Sorry.

This has been a hellish commute.

Over in the New Haven area, traffic is moving (in the 40s mph) east toward the Elm City. Those heading into New Haven from the East Shore are jammed at The Q.

Merritt Parkway

Out of luck here.

Delays start at the Route 8/Merritt merge in Trumbull and don’t let up until 16 miles later until North Stamford.

You get a little relief when speeds pick up into the low 30s mph past Exit 41 in Westport.

Route 8

Merging traffic from Route 25 is causing some delays in Trumbull.

Very heavy SB delays coming down from The Valley because of the infamous bottleneck at the Hull bridge across the Housy.

Route 25

Heavy SB delays in Trumbull before the road transforms from cow path to a real highway at Route 111.

Interstate 84

Only problem is for east bounders in Waterbury as you pass Holy Land. Pray it gets better.

Metro-North

Chugging along on or close to schedule.
