A month-long paving and milling project on Route 1 in Fairfield, from Elliot Place to the town's border with Bridgeport, gets under way Sunday.

The state Department of Transportation project will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. on Sundays through Thursdays. No work will take place Sunday, July 3, or Monday, July 4, because of the July 4th holiday.

Traffic-control personnel and signs will direct motorists through the work zone.

The work schedule is subject to change depending on the weather or other unforeseen conditions, according to the DOT.
