I-95 lane closures to cause backups in Delaware
CHRISTIANA, Del. (AP) — Evening rush-hour drivers will run into backups near Christiana, Delaware for more than two weeks as road crews replace the bridge deck on northbound Interstate 95 over Delaware Route 7.
The News Journal reports the four available lanes on northbound I-95 will be reduced to two on that bridge starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday until Oct. 16. Transportation officials say roadwork will occur weekdays from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. and weekends from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
The ramp that connects southbound Delaware Route 7 to northbound I-95 also will also be shut down during those nighttime hours.
Mobile message boards will be on the highway warning drivers of the closure and redirecting northbound vehicles to take an optional detour onto eastbound Delaware Route 273.
