Eastbound lanes (toward Stratford) are being impacted by the activity.
As of the late morning, two police officers with squad cars and orange cones are helping guide traffic.

Old Stratford Road is a particularly busy road on weekdays due to the nearby Scinto corporate park, and northbound and southbound entrances and exits at Route 8’s Exit 12.

United Illuminating is building a new electrical substation in the immediate vicinity, which has led to a considerable amount of road work. It is unclear if the current work is related to the new substation.
