Traffic heavy headed into the holidays

Everyone’s rolling home for a long holiday weekend, but first they’ve got a long ride ahead of them.

Speeds on Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway are pretty slowing going northbound through Bridgeport. The Merritt is sluggish all the way through Trumbull, and then again around Orange and Hamden.

Eastbound Interstate 84 is also very sluggish from the state line through Newtown.

Metro-North appears to be running on time without any major delays on Connecticut lines.
