If you've driven along I-84 through Waterbury recently, you've seen the progress that's rapidly being made on the massive I-84/Rt. 8-Mixmaster rehabilitation project.

The project's focus over the month of June 2021 is going to require an overnight closure and detour of I-84 Eastbound, starting at Exit 20 in Waterbury, between the hours of 11 PM and 5 AM, from June 1, 2021 right through July 1, 2021.

With the volume of traffic going way up lately, there might be some delays, and if you've never gone through the detour, it may be confusing, so I took a few photos from Google street view to guide you through the I-84 Eastbound/Rt. 8 detour.

Getting through the overnight I-84 Eastbound Closure/Detour in Waterbury

I would expect some delays, especially from the confused out-of-staters and the long lines of overnight delivery tractor trailer drivers that pass through between New York City and Boston. The Mixmaster Rehabilitation project seems to be way ahead of schedule though, due to the hard work of many, give them some room, and slow down as you go through this detour over the next month.
