Southwestern Connecticut traffic updates from the staff at Hearst Connecticut Media Group

Evening commute looking pretty good


Today’s evening commute looks pretty smooth with traffic moving at regular speeds  along most major roads. Interstate 95, the Merritt Parkway and Route 7 are all going about 50 mph.

If you’re driving in Bridgeport, avoid North Avenue between Lindley and Boston. A water main break has made traffic a mess in the area and it’s expected to be that way for several hours.

There was an accident on Route 8 in Bridgeport around 5:30 p.m., but that appears to have cleared. However, traffic on the northbound side is very, very slow as people are backed up at Exit 4 because of the water main break.

If you’re on the Merritt, you’ll tap the brakes around the Route 7 interchange in Norwalk, but the slowdown isn’t too bad.
