BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — It's time for drivers to get ready for new lane configurations as Stage 2 of the Route 8 Crossover project begins at 7 p.m. Friday, with fluctuating lane closures of both northbound and southbound Route 8 for lane re-striping.

By 8 a.m. Saturday, July 16, the Stage 2 configuration will be in effect with southbound traffic being switched to northbound lanes until July 30.

The new configuration includes southbound lanes reduced to two lanes and northbound reduced to three lanes. Drivers should also expect intermittent closures of Lindley Street and Capitol Avenue.
