Governor announces closure of I-95 in Connecticut due to bridge damage from fiery crash

A tanker fire on Interstate 95 in Connecticut caused major damage to a bridge, leading to a days-long closure of the highway. Governor Ned Lamont announced the bridge would need to be demolished and rebuilt, with hopes of reopening the interstate by Monday morning. Residents and trucking companies were alerted to find alternative routes. The accident caused significant traffic jams and gridlock on other roads in the area. Engineers assessed the damage to the bridge, which is likely to be replaced. Cleanup crews worked to contain the gasoline runoff, avoiding contamination of nearby water sources.
