Senator Needleman Announces Pipe Replacement in East Haddam Requiring Detour

Today, State Senator Norm Needleman (D-East Haddam) announced that a metal pipe replacement project expected to begin Tuesday, August 13, will require a detour from Mt. Parnassus Road. The work, scheduled for August 13 and Wednesday, August 14, will lead to a road closure, requiring motorists to take alternative routes.

While Mt. Parnassus Road is closed for the work, motorists will be directed to use Route 82 eastbound and westbound as a replacement route. State traffic control personnel, crash attenuator vehicles, message boards and signing patterns will be in place to guide motorists. The detour is scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on those days. The work schedule may be modified or extended if weather delays or other issues arise. Motorists should maintain a safe speed while driving in the area.
