Traffic is building now on I-95 southbound through Bridgeport and Fairfield. The DOT estimates that your average speed through that stretch will be 33 miles per hour and, no, getting the guy ahead of you to drive faster won’t help.
There are heavy delays on the Merritt Parkway southbound in Norwalk, where an accident between exits 40-42 has tied things up. The back-up is about four miles long at this point.
Route 8 remains clear through the Valley and Metro North trains are on or close to schedule.
