Senator Needleman Announces Safety Improvement Project on Old Saybrook Route 9 to Impact Traffic

State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Essex) announced today that the Department of Transportation plans to conduct a safety improvement project on Route 9 southbound in Old Saybrook on Wednesday and Thursday, November 6 and 7. The project involves installing a guide rail and impact resistance system at Exit 2.

Motorists in the area should expect the road’s shoulder to be closed at this location on those days while work continues. Two crash attenuator vehicles and signing patterns will guide motorists through the work zone. The project is scheduled for 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.

Inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions can impact this schedule. Motorists are asked to maintain safe speed when driving in the area.
