Construction starts on the Merritt Parkway

State officials are warning drivers to expect delays on the Merritt and Wilbur Cross parkways at night.

Crews will be painting lines on the highway from the New York line all the way to Meriden.

Lane closures due to the project will last from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Crews will also be painting lines on a portion of Route 25.

The project is expected to last about a month.
