It's back to school season and almost the end of summer which means that more roadwork is popping up daily. Road crews and major projects are all along I-84 between West Hartford and Danbury, and local roadways are getting some much needed attention while we still have the perfect weather and temperatures to get the roads in great shape before our brutal Winter storm season.
