I-84 to be closed 2 weekends near CT/NY border

The replacement of two bridges in New York State will force the closure of Interstate 84 for two weekends around the Connecticut/New York border starting next month.

The New York State Department of Transportation is replacing two bridges carrying Interstate 84 eastbound and westbound over Dingle Ridge Road in the town of Southeast, Westchester County. The work is being accelerated to minimize traffic impacts, but will require the interstate to be closed in that area during two weekends.

The first weekend closure will be Sept. 21 and 22 when I-84 eastbound will be closed at Exit 20 in Southeast, N.Y.

Traffic will be detoured onto Route 6 in New York  and returned to I-84 at Exit 1 in Danbury.

On one of the following weekends, either Sept. 28 and 29 or Oct. 5 and 6. I-84 westbound will be closed at Exit 1 in Danbury, and directed back onto I-84 at Exit 20 in Southeast, N.Y.

Traffic delays are anticipated. Please use alternate routes and avoid traveling through this area during construction.
