The ongoing I-91 Viaduct Project will also be affecting traffic this week.

Temporary Exit 7-6 on I-91 South will be closed from Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. each night. Crews there are installing joints between sections of the I-91 viaduct.

East Columbus Avenue will be closed during the day from 6:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday as part of the I-91 Viaduct Project as well.
