UPDATED 8:35 a.m.

Traffic on I-95 from Bridgeport and all the way through Stamford is heavy — and slow — with the slowest stretch between downtown Bridgeport and Connecticut Avenue and the Route 7 connector in Norwalk.

Speeds through that 20-mile stretch average 16-23 miles per hour, the state DOT estimates.

From Norwalk to Laddins Rock Road in Greenwich things pick up, but only relatively, with speeds averaging 33-45 miles per hour, according to data from DOT traffic cams.

Route 7 into Norwalk and Route 8/25 into Bridgeport are also choked with traffic at this hour.

I-95 at Connecticut Avenue and Route 7 in Norwalk at 8:40 a.m.

I-95 at Connecticut Avenue and Route 7 in Norwalk at 8:40 a.m.

The Merritt Parkway delays are in two segments now — between Main Avenue in Norwalk and New Canaan Avenue, and further east through Bridgeport and into the Fairfield “No Exit Zone.”

 

Metro North trains are generally running at or close to schedule.
