WATERBURY -

The state D.O.T. says the third lane of I-84 westbound through Waterbury will open tonight.

The third eastbound lane opened just before Labor Day, and has already reduced traffic jams through the area.

State officials say the opening of the westbound lane puts crews on track to finish the long-awaited project a full year early.
