WALLINGFORD — One lane of Route 68 near Interstate 91 will be closed early next week while Eversource Energy installs a new gas line.
The eastbound lane will be closed between the I-91 southbound on-ramp and I-91 northbound off-ramp from Monday morning through Wednesday night while crews work in the area of the highway overpass, Eversource spokesman Mitch Gross said in a statement. The construction is part of a multi-million dollar project to link natural gas distribution systems in Wallingford and Middletown.
Ramps will remain open during construction. Police will direct traffic in the area.
