On or around Monday, September 8, 2014, DOT will then pave this lower portion of Black Rock Turnpike. Paving will be performed from 8 pm to 5 am due to high volumes of traffic during the day and school being open. Paving is expected to last three nights, weather permitting.

The public can expect alternating traffic or minor detours during construction.

Steroid Operation Shutdown and Arrests

In April of 2014, Fairfield Police began to investigate the illegal distribution of narcotic pain medication.  During the course of this four month investigation Fairfield Detectives revealed a large scale (high quality) Anabolic Steroid and Human Growth Hormone manufacturing and distribution network, in conjunction with the illegal distribution of narcotic pain medications.  Detectives discovered structured sums of money were being wired overseas in exchange for raw materials that form the base compound for anabolic steroids.  That material, slightly compounded and heated is then bottled in liquid form or encapsulated in powdered form for injectable and oral consumption.  Fairfield Police discovered these steroids and the illegally obtained pain medications were being distributed in Fairfield and the Greater Bridgeport area.
