(61314024) Delays – GREENWICH I95N at Exit 2 (DORAN AVE) at 6/13/2014 9:28:29 AM #cttraffic

UPDATED 9:20 AM

Most of the action — or rather the lack of it — has shifted north to the Merritt Parkway. I-95 is much clearer than an hour ago and you’ll be able to drive at or near the posted speed limit through most of Fairfield County.

The Merritt, though, slows down on the southbound side at the Park Avenue exit in Trumbull and doesn’t open up again until New Canaan Avenue.

UPDATED 8:20 AM

An accident is blocking the right lane of I-95 south, near Exit 17 in Norwalk. The backup from this extends almost into Fairfield.

A disabled vehicle is blocking the shoulder further east, at Exit 34 in Milford, just before the Moses Wheeler Bridge.

There are big delays on I-84 eastbound in Danbury, but along I-95 and the Merritt Parkway southbound things are relatively smooth, even for a rainy Friday morning.

UPDATE 7:15 AM

The traffic congestion is still centered in Fairfield on both I-95 and the Merritt Parkway southbound. Once you get to Westport, its clear sailing. (With the rain coming in, that could be literally true; take it slow).

Southbound I-95 is starting to build in Bridgeport. LIVE CAM.

Starting to see the first signs of congestion.

And it’s in the usual spot: Southbound I-95 in Bridgeport near Exit 26 and the Route 8/25 connector.

Not too much of a problem with speeds still in the low 40s MPH.

All other roads, including the Merritt Parkway, remain in good shape with no accidents or traffic tie-ups.

UPDATE: 5:53 AM

Wet rooads and light traffic near Exit 8 on I-95 in Stamford. LIVE CAM.

Still looking good this time of day with no congestion on major roads in southwest Connecticut.

We know this won’t last for long.

UPDATE: 5:29 AM

Wet roads and wet cameras at Exit 18 in Westport on I-95 this AM. LIVE CAM.

It’s a wet and foggy start to the AM commute in southwestern Connecticut.

But the good news: there are no accidents or traffic back-ups to worry about this early morning. No construction projects to slow you down either.

Most of the fog is along the coast.

All roads are in good shape at this point.

Even Metro-North is reporting trains on or close to schedule.
