A tractor trailer accident on Interstate 84 westbound is causing traffic delays this morning.
The accident occurred near exit 9 in Bethel around 8 a.m., according to the Connecticut Department of Transportation. It has since been cleared, but delays are continuing on the highway and spilling onto local roads.
As of 9:15 a.m., Glen Road was backed up from Church Hill to Walnut Tree Hill Road by the border of Southbury.
Ongoing construction on I-84 in the area of Exit 11 is also contributing to the congestion.
