Roadwork projects have restarted

In between the morning and evening commute, several construction projects have resumed on highways in the region.

All of the projects will be buttoned up for the day by 4 p.m., the state DOT says.

Here’s a list of where the orange cones and hard hats are:

— The Merritt Parkway northbound in Stamford, between exits 29 and 33. The left lane is closed for that 4-mile stretch.

— The Merritt Parkway northbound between exits 31 and 41. That is a 15-mile stretch with no left lane, but plenty of trees to look at while you are sitting there.

— I-95 northbound between exits 16 and 21, 8 miles of road between Norwalk and Fairfield. Expect lane closures.

— I-95 southbound. The Exit 22 (North Benson Road) ramp in Fairfield will be closed today until 3 p.m. for paving.

— I-84 westbound in Danbury between exits 1-2. Some lane shifts and closures possible. Here is a photo of Exit 2 in Danbury, at 12:45 p.m.image151
