WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s Department of Motor Vehicles says it is shutting down its walk-in service early Friday because of long lines of customers since a new computer system was installed.

The DMV planned to begin turning away customers at 2 p.m. Friday, citing the high volume of customers and a desire “to get staff out at a reasonable time.”

In a release, the department says its employees have been working until about 10:30 p.m. for the past three days to meet demand.

Branches were mostly closed last week, providing only license-related services so the agency could complete a major computer system upgrade that includes offering more services online.

Offices resumed registration-related services Tuesday.
