PLAINVILLE, CT (WFSB) -

A busy stretch of road will be impacted by a construction project in Plainville and New Britain Monday.

According to the Department of Transportation, two lanes of Interstate 84 eastbound will be "flipping."

The lane shift will go into effect Monday night.

The two lanes, which are on the right, will shift to the left through the construction zone as the DOT continues work to restore bridges.

The I-84 bridge will be reduced to two lanes through the end of the month.
