DelDOT to Close Lanes and Ramps on I-95 Northbound and Southbound for Weekend Repairs Beginning Saturday, Dec. 14

Post Date:12/12/2019 11:00 AM

Brandywine River Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction; ramps at North Adams Street and Delaware Avenue will be closed until Monday morning

Motorists are advised by the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) that Interstate-95 northbound and southbound will require double lane closures over the Brandywine River Bridge this weekend. There will be a single lane for traffic in each direction as a result, beginning 6:00 p.m. Saturday, December 14, 2019 until 5:00 a.m. Monday, December 16, 2019, weather permitting.   During this time, the I-95 northbound on-ramp from North Adams Street will be closed, as will the I-95 southbound Exit 7B at Delaware Avenue.

According to DelDOT, these closures are necessary to allow for the repair of deterioration of the road surface in the center lane both northbound and southbound. The entire concrete surface of the bridge deck will be replaced during the upcoming I-95 Corridor Rehabilitation Project beginning in March 2021.
