BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Motorists will breathe a sigh of relief when the Stage 1 Crossover phase of the road project on Route 8 and 25 in Bridgeport is completed on Saturday, the Connecticut Department of Transportation announced.

The work involved includes the rehabilitation and/or replacement of four bridge structures on Route 8 in Bridgeport (over Capitol Avenue and Lindley Street), as well as the widening of the Exit 4 northbound off-ramp and Lindley Street.

All traffic realignments are anticipated to be completed by 7 a.m. Saturday.

Various Bridgeport roads may continue to be impacted. Capitol Avenue and Lindley Street may experience short-term alternating closures to facilitate ongoing road work, DOT said. Detour routes will be posted in the event of a closure.
