Fairfield Service Plaza on I-95

Fairfield Service Plaza on I-95

I-95 is jammed now through Bridgeport, beginning at Exit 29, Seaview Avenue, and continuing all the way out to Exit 21, Mill Plain Road in Fairfield. Your average speed through the area will be a swift 16 miles per hour.

There is another slow spot in Norwalk beginning at Exit 17, Saugatuck Avenue, and continuing through the city.

If the Merritt Parkway will get you where you need to go, that’s definitely the better option right now. There is the usual morning build-up beginning at the Route 111 Exit in Trumbull and going out through Fairfield but traffic is still moving pretty well — almost at the speed limit — despite the volume.

Route 8 is clear through the Valley.

Metro North reports no delays on its trains.
