NORWALK, Conn. Beleaguered I-95 drivers may someday get a little relief now that the state is close to approving $85 million in funding for two "traffic-mitigation" lanes to be built between Exits 14 and 15 in Norwalk.
Once again, the state of Connecticut is making the investments needed to preserve and grow our infrastructure at both the state and local levels, state Sen. Bob Duff said in a statement Friday. I have been advocating for these congestion mitigation lanes at Exits 14 and 15 for quite some time, so Im happy to finally have the money released for this project.
The widening project planned around the interchange of I-95 and Route 7 will include improvements to Route 1. Gov. Dannel Malloy promised to make the I-95 improvements a priority last October, calling that stretch of the interstate "chokepoint number one" on the corridor.
The State Bond Commission was scheduled to meet Friday to approve the funding.
