Roads clogged for the ride to your weekend

A weekend of gloomy, wet weather lies ahead of you but first you’ll have to brave the grim traffic on the areas highways.

We’re seeing some serious northbound slowing on both Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway. I-59 has speeds in the 20s from the New York state line all the way into Fairfield. The Merritt is similarly sluggish from North Stamford into Trumbull.

Route 7 and the Milford Parkway are looking good, but Route 8 has a patch of very slow traffic going north from Trumbull into Shelton.

We’re not really sure what’s causing the sluggishness. No major accidents are reported in the area, but it looks like there are a lot of people anxious to get home and relax.

Hopefully, you’ll be able to do just that very soon.
