November 02, 1990

The city Department of Transportation has announced that the widening of Interstate 95 between Caton Avenue and Russell Street will begin Tuesday, affecting most traffic patterns for about three months.

The $14.8 million project ultimately will increase this portion of I-95 from three to four lanes in each direction.

In conjunction with the project, these ramp closures and lane restrictions have been scheduled:

* At midnight Monday, northbound I-95 between Caton Avenue and Russell Street will be reduced to two lanes of traffic for approximately three months.

* At 7 p.m. Tuesday, the exit ramp from northbound I-95 to Washington Boulevard will be closed. The ramp will re-open in February 1991. To detour, go north on I-95 north to Russell Street. Turn right at Haines Street, left at Warner Street, left at Bayard Street, then left at Washington Boulevard.

* At 7 p.m. Thursday, the entrance ramp from southbound Russell Street to southbound I-95 will be closed. The ramp will re-open in November, 1991. To detour, go south on Russell Street and then take the exit to Interstate 695 north. From I-695, take the exit for I-95 south.

* Also at 7 p.m. Thursday, the entrance ramp from Washington Boulevard to southbound I-95 will be closed. The ramp will re-open in February 1991. To detour, go south on Washington Boulevard, turn right at Caton Avenue and then take the exit for I-95 south.
