LIVE Traffic Cam on Route 8/25

Posted by Jim Miron | Jun 10, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Connecticut Post reports that as a major traffic change nears on Route 8/25, the state Department of Transportation has added a live traffic cam let people keep eye on the action.

Starting tonight and continuing for two weeks, southbound Route 8/25 traffic will be shifted onto northbound portion of the highway.

The number of lanes on Route 8/25 will be reduced to three lanes northbound and two lanes southbound, between Exit 3 and Exit 5.

 The traffic changes are need for the $34,752,000 rehabilitation and replacement of four, 44-year-old bridges over Capitol Avenue and Lindley Street, as well as the widening of the Exit 4 northbound off-ramp and Lindley Street. The bridges will be replaced with four prefabricated bridge units that are being constructed off Exit 5 (Boston Avenue).

On Thursday, a large crane that will be used to lift the pre-fab bridges, arrived at the Boston Avenue construction site.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, lane realignments will begin.

DOT says “during this period motorists should anticipate fluctuating lane closures on both northbound and southbound Routes 8/25 to allow for the shifting of lane markings. On Friday evening, the Route 8 southbound on-ramp from Chopsey Hill Road will be closed to traffic and remain closed until June 25. Detours will be posted to guide motorists to the Exit 4 southbound on-ramp on Lindley Street.”

By 8 a.m. Saturday, it's anticipated that all traffic realignments will be completed, and the Stage 1 Crossover configuration will be established. The configuration will remain in effect continuously until the morning of June 25.

The new traffic camera now brings to two the number of live cams on Route 8/25 in Bridgeport.
