Nighttime work related to Downtown Crossing will occur between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. throughout the week of October 11th in various locations in the vicinity of Congress Avenue, Lafayette Street, and College Street near South Frontage Road. This work will create noise that may be loud at times.
This work is being done at night to maintain hospital access and public safety. If done during the daytime hours, this work could inhibit access to Yale New Haven Hospital as it requires additional lane closures, beyond the existing South Frontage Road closure between College and Church Streets.
There will be no changes to the existing traffic patterns this week. South Frontage Road remains closed between College & Church Streets with detours for drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists in effect. Please see below, towards the end of this newsletter, for graphics of the various detour routes.
Additional, various single lane closures may also occur and are listed in more detail immediately below.
