Gov. John Rowland, back at the I-95 tanker accident site, said today the southbound lanes of I-95 in the area are expected to reopen in time for Wednesday morning’s rush hour.
Rowland said the exact timing of the reopening in the area of Bridgeport exits 25 to 27 would depend on how much the rain that was forecast for tonight interferes with paving work and painting road markings.
But all signs pointed to the highway being fully open by about 6 a.m. Wednesday, he said.
“Hopefully they will be going southbound on 95 first thing tomorrow morning,” he said.
The northbound lanes of the bridge were repaired and reopened Sunday night.
