[NEW] On Saturday, June 19, 2021 at approximately 10:00 PM, the area of Route 25 and Route 111 has been reopened to allow the normal flow of traffic. The traffic lights are currently functioning in their normal capacity as the utility poles and power lines have been replaced and the power has been restored. Traffic flow has returned to normal and the detours around the area of Route 25 and Route 111, in Trumbull, are no longer in effect.
[6/19 ORIGINAL] Effective immediately, motorists should avoid the intersection of Route 25 and Route 111 in Trumbull, which is near the Monroe town line, due to a power outage and the loss of traffic control signals.
Following an overnight paving project on Route 111, between the Route 25 expressway and the Monroe town line, a dump truck collided with power lines which caused damage to several utility poles and the loss of power for all nearby traffic control signals.
The Route 25 and Route 111 intersection is currently without power, causing traffic delays throughout the area. This area will be affected for at least the next 12 hours.
Motorists should avoid this area for all of Saturday and use alternate routes. Trumbull Police and State DOT will be assisting with traffic control at the intersection and will provide updates later in the day.
