Ridgefield drivers will get a reprieve from traffic stops at the Route 35 bridge site next week.

After weeks of alternating one-way traffic near Fox Hill condominiums, the state has decided it will not stop cars in town between Monday, May 7, and Friday, May 11.

Baier has notified me that  there is no construction activity planned for next week," said Ryan Wodjenski of the state Department of Transportation (DOT) told The Press Friday, May 4.

The state hopes the project will be completed by the end of May.
