Motorists traveling northbound on the Merritt Parkway and accessing Entrance and Exit ramps for Exit 41 and 42 can expect intermittent Nighttime Ramp closures to occur after 12AM starting Monday October 2, 2017 through October 13, 2017. Signed Detours will be set up to direct traffic to an alternate exit or entrance ramp. The Contractor will begin milling and paving both lanes of the Merritt Parkway northbound (Route 15) from the Newtown Turnpike overpass in Westport to the Congress Street overpass in Fairfield. Traffic accessing Entrance and Exit ramps for Exit 41 and 42 northbound will be detoured as work passes these locations. Ramp closures and detours will occur after 12AM and will effect only one ramp at a time.

The project consists of the rehabilitation of 5 miles (each direction) of Route 15 and 11 structures (over and underpasses) in the towns of Fairfield and Westport.  Upgrades to pavement, guiderail, drainage and historic concrete are included.
