The Delaware Department of Transportation’s (DelDOT) contractor, Cherry Hill Construction, will be periodically redirecting traffic overnight on various dates in February by closing Interstate 95, restricting lanes or closing ramps to expedite the installation of steel beams over I-95.
DelDOT recommends motorists avoid construction and seek alternate routes during these times. All closures, restrictions and associated detours will be signed before and during construction activity. The work is necessary to build the new interchange.
These closures are dependent on weather conditions and will be rescheduled if needed.
Anticipated Dates and Times:
Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16
I-95 Southbound CLOSED just south of Exit 4A (to Route 1 southbound) from 10 PM until 10 AM both nights.

In order to mitigate anticipated backups on I-95 Southbound Exit 4A, traffic is encouraged to exit I-95 at the SR 141 interchange, travel south to US 13 Southbound, south to SR 273 Westbound then back to I-95.
