The Connecticut United Ride, a motorcycle ride paying tribute to the 20th anniversary of 9/11, will be passing through the Greater Danbury area today.  All adjacent intersections will be closed along the route from Sherwood Island State Park, through Wilton, Redding, Bethel, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Fairfield and Bridgeport. 

The 60-mile ride, along a closed route, will have riders escorted by police.  They will proceed through intersections and stop lights without stopping. Motorists are required to wait for the entire motorcade to pass, until the last emergency vehicle passes. The event begins around 10:30 and ends around 1:15pm. 

Governor Lamont is directing U.S. and state flags in Connecticut to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset today, in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. The state will illuminate the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge in New Haven in red, white, and blue lights in recognition of the anniversary. Beacons capable of projecting light nearly six miles into the clear night sky will be lit.
