WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Town of Westport has been informed that the Connecticut Department of Transportation the section of North Compo Road between Main Street and Cross Highway will is closed for roadwork for about a month.
The replacement of the culvert beneath the roadway will mean a full closure and detours will be in effect for beginning Monday approximately 30 days.
Motorists are urged to use caution, seek alternative routes and allow additional time for travel in the area. The overall construction and realignment of the problematic intersection at Main Street and Compo Road North at Clinton Avenue is expected to be completed in the fall.
First Selectman Jim Marpe said, “While I recognize that this road closure may create a short term inconvenience, this construction, along with the anticipated opening of both lanes of the North Avenue Bridge in late August, will provide longer term traffic improvements and increased safety on these critical Westport roads. I appreciate the public’s patience and cooperation as we work with the State DOT to complete these long-planned projects.”
