WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) - A u-turn opened in the vicinity of the Interstate-84 and Route 8 mixmaster construction project to help accommodate drivers during an exit closure.

According to project officials, the u-turn opened on Tuesday morning in Waterbury amid the closure of the exit 31 off-ramp from Route 8 north to I-84 east.

"Motorists looking to access I-84 eastbound from Route 8 northbound will take Exit 35, utilize the u-turn to proceed southbound on Route 8 and then take exit 31," officials posted to Facebook.

They also said that signs to alert drivers were posted along both sides of Route 8 and exit 35.
