Here's a heads-up if you travel on Route 15 through Orange:

Road work will result in the closure of a northbound lane between exits 55B and 57 from Wednesday, Sept. 4 through Thursday, Sept. 5.

According to the Connecticut Department of Transportation, the right lane will be closed till about 3 p.m. on Sept. 5.

Drivers are encouraged to be extra cautious when traveling through work zones, and to obey posted speed limit signs.

According to the National Safety Council, more than 100 road construction workers are killed in construction zones each year. "Nearly half of these workers are killed as a result of being struck by motor vehicles," the Council states.
