I-95 in Norwalk reopens after fiery crash left it closed for days

Interstate 95 in Norwalk, Connecticut reopened Sunday after a flaming crash involving a gasoline tanker scorched a bridge and left the roadway closed for days, officials said.

Is 95 open in Norwalk?

Workers began demolishing the bridge on Friday and worked to repave damaged parts of the roadway in time for rush hour on Monday.

"It is truly remarkable to complete this work in less than 80 hours," CT Gov. Ned Lamont said in a post on X.

On Saturday, the northbound lanes reopened at 8 p.m., but the southbound lanes were still closed due to repaving. 

What happened on I-95?

Parts of I-95 near exit 15 closed Thursday after a large truck fire.

The bridge was scorched after a gasoline tanker collided with two other vehicles and burst into flames.

According to state police, a car was merging from the right lane when it struck a gas truck, which was carrying 8,500 gallons of fuel. 

The truck then hit a tractor-trailer in another lane and caught fire. 

Nobody was seriously injured, and no charges were filed.

The interstate serves as a major link between New England and New York. The closure left drivers jampacked bumper to bumper on some of the detour routes.
