UPDATED 7:10 AM

First signs of a slowdown now, on I-95 south in Bridgeport and again in Norwalk. You’ll dip below the posted speed limit passing through both cities, but that’s about the extent of it.

The Merritt remains in good shape, and the trains are on time.

UPDATED 6:35 AM

There is a disabled vehicle on the right shoulder of the Route 8/25 connector in Bridgeport, just before Exit 1, Myrtle Avenue. It is having a minimal impact on traffic, which usually bogs down in this spot a bit later on weekday mornings.

The Merritt Parkway is flowing smoothly in both directions and no delays are being reported on Metro North Railroad.

The roads are clear at this hour. No delays, construction or accidents to report.

If you leave now, you could have a relatively stree free Monday morning commute.
