Bridge repair causes 2-hour delays on I-95

BRIDGEPORT, CT (AP) -

Some emergency road work on Interstate 95 has led to major delays in the morning commute in southern Connecticut.

The state Department of Transportation says the work on a highway bridge has led to the closure of three southbound lanes and 19-miles of congestion between exits 27 in Bridgeport and 9 in Stamford.

That resulted in a delay of more than two hours for some motorists during the Tuesday morning commute.

There also were delays reported on the Merritt Parkway as commuters looked for an alternative route into Stamford and New York.
