The state Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to use alternate routes.
"I-84 eastbound will be fully closed beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 19 and will be reopened Sunday afternoon, October 20," officials said in this notice. Lane closures and sign work are expected to be underway at 11 a.m. "All eastbound I-84 traffic will be detoured onto Route 6 at Exit 20 in the Town of Southeast and directed back onto I-84 at Exit 1 in the City of Danbury, CT."
Dingle Ridge Road will be closed from Friday (Oct. 18) until at least Wednesday (Oct. 23). Other roads—motorists will be prohibited from making left turns onto 6 within the detour—will be affected too.
