UPDATE 8:40 a.m.
The last morning commute of the work week is seeing the lighter traffic that we get on Fridays compared to other weekdays.
For many people its also the last day of work or school before the Christmas holiday.
There have been no reports of accidents in our area, and both I-95 and the Merritt Parkway are flowing smoothly except for the usual choke points.
I-95 south is busy from downtown Bridgeport out to North Benson Road in Fairfield and again around the Route 7 ramps in Norwalk.
Traffic on the Merritt is heaviest at Exit 48, the main access to the Westfield Trumbull mall. But perhaps that is a coincidence.
Metro North is not reporting any delays on New Haven Line trains at this hour.
