DelDOT details lane, exit closings in preparation for I-95 Wilmington project


Work is underway on the Interstate 95 project in Wilmington after a weather-related delay last week.

The project includes extensive work on the nearly 60-year-old interstate stretch, which has aging viaducts.

Preliminary work includes installing concrete barriers and pavement striping will require various closures on I-95 southbound through Feb. 26. Motorists are asked to use routes I-495 or US 13.

After weekend work,   I-95 southbound will have reduced through lanes between the Route 202 interchange and the I-295 split. I-95 southbound on and off-ramps will remain open during the Phase I period.
