STAMFORD, Conn. -- South State Street is closed from Lafayette to North State streets in Stamford, according to the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
South State Street eastbound traffic is being detoured to Lafayette Street.
The closure will continue through spring as road crews make repairs to the overpass that carries I-95 over the Metro-North train tracks.
A completion date hasn't been specified but the contractor has a six-month window to complete the work.
The initial portion of the project consists of removing and replacing the existing pier cap and supporting I-95 with a temporary structure.
Concrete repairs will be done concurrently on the existing piers, utilizing the temporary detour of South State Street.
The $4.1 million project was awarded to Blakeslee Arpaia Chapman Inc. of Branford in April, 2014.
