WATERBURY — The highly anticipated expansion to I-84 in Waterbury won’t be ready before the weekend, as previously expected.

I-84 Waterbury Project Plan – 01

The I-84 Waterbury Project, which adds a third lane of travel between exits 22 and 25A in both directions, was intended for completion by midnight Saturday. However, those plans hit a snag this past week, as severe weather hit the region and delayed workers from putting on the final touches.

“The best case scenario would be to open them Sunday,” Nursick said. “As for the worst case, it should still be ready to go by Monday morning.”

The new lanes will provide some desperately-needed relief for the morning and afternoon commute through Waterbury, where drivers must contend with major traffic congestion on a near-daily basis.
