Other than the weekend closures of one block of South Frontage Road noted above, there will be no changes to the existing traffic pattern through Friday, January 28, 2022.
Various single-lane closures will occur to accommodate construction for 101 College Street and Downtown Crossing Phase 2 and are listed in more detail immediately below.
The temporary condition of no right-hand turns onto South Frontage Road from South Orange Street remains in place. A simple detour will guide drivers from State Street and Union Avenue to access South Frontage Road: right onto Columbus Avenue, right onto Church Street, and then right onto South Frontage Road.
This detour will not impact traffic already on South Frontage Road and heading to I91/I95.
The detour will only impact drivers who typically access South Frontage Road from South Orange Street, behind the New Haven police station and the Knights of Columbus printing press/supply building.
This detour will be in place until the new Orange Street intersection (across the former highway corridor) opens, which is anticipated to occur in approximately the next month and a half.
Please see graphics immediately below this text section for detour information.

South Frontage Road: the far-left lane closure on SFR between College and Church Streets will be closed.
