A key off-ramp from Interstate 95 to Route 896 near Newark will be closed in late May for bridge deck repairs.
Eastern Highway Specialists, Wilmington, is the contractor for the project that will close the southbound ramp to Route 896. Detours will be posted.
The exit will be closed from May 29 to May 31. The closings will take place on a 24-hour basis. The rain dates are June 3 to June 5th.
Interstate 95 is now a half-century old and DelDOT has been working to repair bridges and off ramps.
A massive project to deal with aging viaducts through the City of Wilmington is expected to get underway in a couple of years.
