Construction project will close portion of Route 111 in Monroe

Beginning Monday, Aug. 11, Route 111 between Route 110 and Cross Hill Road in Monroe will be closed for construction. The Connecticut Department of Transportation said the work will start at 5:30 a.m. Monday. Motorists are asked to use posted detour routes during that time.

The road is expected to be open to traffic no later than Aug. 20. Until the road is open, only local traffic will be allowed in that area.  There will, however, be access to local businesses.

Detour routes are posted.  Police are asking drivers to use the alternate routes and avoid the construction area.
