Beginning May 9, 2022 traffic in and around the “Five Corners Intersection” will be disrupted due to ongoing construction.
Vehicular traffic on Benham Road between George Avenue and Poquonnock Road will be limited to local traffic only. All through traffic will be re-routed to George Avenue and High Street and then on to Poquonnock Road.
Chicago Avenue traffic will be limited to local traffic northbound from Forest Street to Poquonnock Road. Through traffic will be re-routed to travel East on Forest Street to Benham Road. Southbound traffic on Chicago Avenue will be open.
Vehicles traveling East and West on Poquonnock Road as well as vehicles traveling southbound on Mitchell Street will be controlled by flaggers.
Please expect minor delays and be observant for traffic directional signs and follow Officers/Flaggers direction. Please travel slowly and safely in this area to ensure the well-being of all workers within the construction zone.
