EAST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The Town of East Hartford said it will be closing an exit off of Route 2 eastbound for a couple of days starting Thursday morning.

Officials said on Sept. 29 and 30, the eastbound side exit 5 ramp will be closed during the day for milling work on an intersection.

Exit 5 provides access to Willow Street and includes Pratt & Whitney and Coca Cola.

Traffic will be diverted to exit 5A and follow a northward detour on Main Street.

The closure has been set from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.

The work is part of an East Hartford multi-use trail project connecting Riverside Drive and the Charter Oak Greenway.
