WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Merritt Parkway's northbound Exit 41 ramps in Westport will be closed Friday evening, the Connecticut Department of Transportation announced.
First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said in a press release the state told him the ramps would be closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday "for paving as part of the Westport Family Y building construction project."
Westport officials said "motorists can expect lane closures to occur which will require a detour while the paving project is performed," according to the release.
"Traffic control personnel and signing patterns will be utilized to guide motorists through the work zone," representatives said in the release. "Motorists should be aware that modifications or extension of this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. In addition, motorists are reminded to maintain a safe speed when driving in the vicinity."
