Re-Opening of the new and expanded 2nd Street on-ramp to I-95

The new 2nd Street on-ramp to I-95 southbound in Wilmington opened on December 31, 2020.

Wilmington – The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that the new 2nd Street on-ramp to I-95 southbound has opened during the overnight hours on Wednesday, December 30. This was the first project related to the upcoming I-95 corridor rehabilitation project and was opened on schedule by contractor R.E. Pierson.

This nearly $20 million project, which began on April 15, 2020, removed the previous I-95 southbound on-ramps and bridge structures for the 2nd Street and Jackson Street ramps and built a new ramp configuration for access to I-95 southbound.

Additional left-turn lanes have also been added on Lancaster Avenue to Adams Street and 2nd Street to the newly reconfigured on-ramp. This new ramp will provide access to I-95 southbound for traffic leaving the city throughout the duration of the I-95 rehabilitation project while other ramps are closed for construction.

Traffic impacts for the I-95 rehabilitation project are scheduled to begin on Friday, February 12, 2021, with construction on the multi-year project beginning in March. For more information on the project visit
