I-95 Lane Closures and Traffic Shifts in New Haven Continue
If you’re headed into the city from the South bound lanes, the latest traffic shift will move drivers toward the new lanes of the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge. Transportation officials are even warning drivers of serious delays in next weekend’s plans to shift southbound traffic to the new Pearl Harbor/Q Bridge.
Along with the detour drivers will have to deal with lane closures. During the day only two lanes will be open and one at night. Ramp closures will also occur.
Although electronic signs will warn drivers of the detour and lane closures, it is important that all motorists stay alert of shifts in traffic. It is estimated that in the last five years more than 200,000 persons have been injured in construction zone accidents.
In Connecticut specifically, approximately 124 accidents involved construction vehicles in 2008 and more than 13% of all accident collisions occurred on the interstate.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction zone accident caused by a careless driver, the victim may be entitled to compensation for property damage, medical, expenses and more. Contact our knowledgeable New Haven attorneys today to find out more about your legal rights.
