Traffic on Interstate 95 southbound at Long Wharf

State police and state Department of Transportation will patrol in the Long Wharf area of New Haven to enforce the speed limit, which is 40 mph at the Long Wharf interchange of I-95 and I-91.

“To help motorists navigate the corridor safely and efficiently, there will be increased state police presence for speed limit enforcement after the Labor Day holiday,” said a release, issued Thursday.

The 40 mph limit on Interstate 95 southbound runs from Exit 52 in East Haven almost to Exit 42 in West Haven. Northbound it starts near Howard Avenue, continuing to Exit 52.

Assistant District Engineer Brian Mercure said some state police patrols “are designed or trained to be used in peak-hour traffic.”

Other cars will be doing radar enforcement from “pockets” the DOT created with Jersey barriers along the highway.

“We want to slow people down coming into the interchange from all the legs, I-91 included,” Mercure said.
