There will be no changes to the existing traffic pattern this week. Single-lane closures will continue to occur throughout the project area. Please see below for more details on the single-lane closures.

As a reminder, last week's week's closure of South Frontage Road between College and Church Streets will remain in effect until November 2021 to safely accommodate Downtown Crossing Phase 3 construction.

Please note:
  • Detour routes around the South Frontage Road closure will be marked with on-street signage to guide drivers through the detour. Please pay attention to the signage, slow down, and stay safe!

  • The portion of Columbus Avenue between Church Street South and South Orange Street is permanently reopened. This portion of Columbus Avenue provides drivers with an additional way to navigate around the South Frontage Road detour: take Columbus Avenue to South Orange Street to South Frontage Road.

  • In addition to the signed detour route, various alternate routes have been developed to provide commuters with additional options to access I91/I95. There are many routes to and from Downtown New Haven and the Medical District that are underutilized and may provide efficient alternatives to commuters -- even outside of Downtown Crossing Phase 3 construction! Alternate route information can be found on the Downtown Crossing New Haven website under South Frontage Road Closure Information tab

  • Please see further below in the email for maps of the closed portion of South Frontage Road, detour routes, and more

Throughout the two-week period of Monday, June 7 and Friday, June 18, 2021 various lane closures may occur on the following roads to accommodate construction:
