WESTON, Conn. -- After the first night of overnight construction on the Weston Road project -- and its accompanying noise -- finished, the Weston Police Department said Tuesday that more was to come.

But the plans have changed, following multiple complaints, according to the Weston Forum.

The work is on Weston Road, Route 57,  over Kettle Creek, to replace culverts under the road, as the Weston Forum reported.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation had said the overnight work began Monday at 8 p.m. and finished around 6 a.m. That schedule was continue until at least Thursday night, to try to speed the project along.

"Weather permitting, the hope is to finish this current phase this week in an effort to complete this project by the end of December before the winter weather sets in," the Weston Police said.

The police department said Tuesday that DOT is aware of concerns about the noise -- and that complaints can be filed with the DOT. But the project will now be limited to daytime work, according to the Weston Forum.

Drivers should expect increased delays, as the work continues, and should consider alternate routes.
