DARIEN — The stretch of Noroton Avenue between West Elm Street and Middlesex Road will be closed this week between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. for the installation of new water services, according to the Darien Police Department.

Detour signs will be posted, deferring drivers to Edgerton Street. Drivers are also advised to consider alternative routes during this time.

Police said that closing the roadway will allow the project to be finished more quickly, as multiple construction crews will be able to work on the stretch at once.
