I95 Accident Update - Highway to Remain Closed

Dear Families of Westport Students and Staff,

Late this afternoon officials from Norwalk and the state announced that the bridge compromised in this morning's fiery crash will need to be demolished. Work is set to begin this evening which means Interstate 95 will remain closed in that area for the foreseeable future. With this in mind we ask that families and staff plan ahead for heavy traffic issues tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. 

One way to limit traffic on our local roads tomorrow is for students to utilize bus transportation in the morning and in the afternoon. The community will already be managing a higher volume of commuters on local roads, so limiting the number of students being dropped off and picked up by personal vehicles will assist in making our arrival and dismissal periods run smoothly. 

As mentioned earlier today, I encourage families to utilize the First View Bus Tracking App to assist in determining exact pick up and drop off times. This will help in managing schedules impacted by expected bus delays. Please follow this link for App access and instructions.

Despite the challenges we are all facing with this terrible accident, I am confident we can work together to minimize its impact on the daily operations of our schools.


Thomas Scarice
